An Olmstead hearing was held in Rochester Aug. 19, about what life is like for people with disabilities.
Tow ARC Southwest representatives were there to speak. Hopefully there will bea follow-up report on this special hearing.
ARC Southwest has contracted with ARC Minnesota to continue the housing access program. This program assists people who qualify for a waiver. they will receive assistance in funding a home of their own.
Looking on the bright side, ARC Southwest has increased to better support people with disabilities and their families in our area.
The State Fair will have finished up for another year and here's hoping that a number of parents with children and adults with disabilities will have stopped by to talk with their State Representatives and Senators in their various booths.
Also, our US Reps and Senators. It was an excellent time to let them personally know the problems that many children, adults and parents have.
Our Governor was also on hand at the State Fair to visit with constituents.
