Thank you to the Montgomery County Council for recognizing the efforts of Upcounty Community Resources, Inc., while proclaiming April as Autism Acceptance Month.
We are very fortunate our representatives recognize the growing needs of our family members. Councilmember Katz views our "community is a family ... everyone deserves to live healthy, comfortable, prosperous lives." Our Upcounty Councilmember Rice noted, "we are a model community ... making sure people with disabilities are woven into every fabric of our community."
We do need to be, "not only acknowledged but accepted," said Councilmember Jawando, while Councilmember Albornoz noted the need for more early intervention and detection services for our children needing diagnosis and access to services.
It is an honor to be recognized with these partner organizations:
Partnership for Extraordinary Minds
Madison House Autism Foundation
Commission for People with Disabilities
The Arc Montgomery County
CSAAC
Integrated Living Opportunities
MCPD Autism/IDD Outreach Unit
Main Street
Autism Society
