(Atlantic) ID Action and Cass Incorporated will hold a community conversation on June 12th to raise awareness of the positive impact that those with developmental disabilities have in their communities.
Three Cass Incorporated clients will speak about their community involvement during the event that will be held at Iowa Western Community College in Atlantic on Tuesday.
Service Coordinator Jenny Rogers with Cass Incorporated says persons with disabilities take great pride in completing tasks within the community.
“I think it’s going to be a very unique opportunity. A lot of people don’t understand that individuals with disabilities have abilities just as wonderful as what we are able to do and sometimes even more so and hopefully this will get ablot of awareness out into the community.”
Barbara Curtis, Sally Fischer, and Tara Christensen will all speak at the event which is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 12th in room 141 at Iowa Western Community College in Atlantic.
