A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
We have a member who was unable to speak until she was 20. Her time in a facility had provided a detrimental environment that left her unable to advocate for herself. She came to a chapter meeting and began to get support. Now following many trainings, care, and support she is a fearless advocate for others with disabilities. She regularly testifies, speaks at events, and organizes others to help make the world a better place for people with disabilities.
