The Power of Belonging
Community Homes staff, board and families participated in the November 25 Legislative Forum. Hosted by the Arc of King County and the King County Board for Developmental Disabilities, this event reminds us of the importance of belonging.
With over 30 elected officials, 10 advocacy speakers and 600 family members in attendance, this annual event highlights the importance of increasing access to services and expanding housing capacity for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Toward the end of the evening, audience members were asked to stand if they received services in the areas of early intervention, school to work, employment, or were waiting for services. All 600 attendees were standing together in solidarity of this important work.
As we head into the holiday season, we are so thankful for our amazing community that understands the power of belonging. Through the support of our friends and families, you help make a difference in the lives of adults with disabilities.
Happy holidays from all of us at Community Homes!
