March is National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. A time to celebrate the many contributions people with developmental disabilities make to our society. A time to provide the encouragement and opportunities necessary for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to reach their full potential.
We had with us recently, The Arc of King County, a nonprofit serving many of the more than 27,000 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families in the Puget Sound area.
They advocate for the right of children and adults with I/DD to live, learn, work and play in the community.
On April 8, The Arc of King County is hosting their Legacy Gala to celebrate their founders, acknowledge the work that they have accomplished over the course of the past year, and recognize leaders in the disability community.
To talk about The Arc of King County, their Gala, and all the work they do for the community, we invited Stacy Gillett, their Executive Director, Robin Tatsuda, Director of Information and Family Support, and Molly McCabe – a student at Seattle University who champions their Best Buddies program.
