Community Disability Awareness Workgroup (CDAW)

The mission of The Arc of Indiana County is to include people with developmental delays or other disabilities in every community. Sometimes, community members have heard about a disability but don’t know much about it. They may feel uncomfortable interacting with a person with a disability.

People with disabilities want to work, live in and contribute to their community like everyone else.

The Community Disability Awareness Workgroup hopes you will be able to join us at our monthly meetings, the 1st Monday of each month, 8:30 to 9:30am, at The Arc of Indiana County office.

For additional information or questions, please contact, Barbara Telthorster (Executive Director, The Arc of Indiana County) at 724-349-8230 or btelth@arcindiana.org .
