Places, Spaces, and People worth Knowing IMHO.
We are a group of colleagues working in disability services at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Predominantly Black Colleges and Universities (PBCUs).
The mission of The Arc of Massachusetts is to enhance the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including autism, and their families. We fulfill this through advocacy for community supports and services that foster social inclusion, self-determination, and equity across all aspects of society.
The Arc promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.
Inclusion is about living full lives – about learning to live together in community, celebrating all of our diversity and welcoming the gifts of everyone.
What people want is simple:
someone to love, somewhere to live, somewhere to work and something to hope for.
Our mission is to enable Massachusetts residents with developmental disabilities and their families to find or create sustainable, supported, self-directed housing that meets their needs and contributes to their quality of life.
Through my essays, keynotes, articles, and books, I am trying to make sense of autism and find a way to my oldest son, and help others with this challenge of autism at the same time.
