Project Description

By strengthening the group’s presence in the rural Elgin community, this outreach and development project will help individuals with developmental disabilities live independently, while actively supporting their inclusion in the community. The project’s overall goal is to increase awareness of the group by connecting local people with developmental disabilities and helping them find resources. This includes providing a voice for African-American participants regarding their specific needs and values and by opening the door for new partnerships on the community level. The project will sponsor a family resource fair and community meetings that will provide participants with information and resources.
