a few important reasons why
supporting the Council is so important
When the doctor told them that their newborn daughter had physical and mental disabilities, Joe & Karen didn’t know where to turn for help. The Council’s Parent Outreach programs was there to provide them with information and match them with other parents who could share guidance and support.
When Jim was entering middle school his mother knew he needed special services in order to succeed, and with the help of the Council’s Educational Advocacy program she learned about Jim’s rights and she received the information and support she needed. Later when Jim was ready, with special assistance, to live and work in the community, the Council’s Government Affairs program was essential. These strong advocates help make funding available for specialized services for Jim and hundreds of others throughout our community.
Bill is aging with grace, but he needs help with a few chores that he used to be able to do on his own. The Council’s Citizen Advocacy program finds, trains, and supports competent volunteers to be matched with a person who can benefit from having a friend’s help.
These are just a few of the ways that the Council on Developmental Disabilities is daily giving hope, vision, and voice to those in our community with developmental disabilities. Throughout life, the Council is there, ensuring that adults and children with developmental disabilities are included, empowered, and valued in our community.
