The Beloved Connections Made at the GW
Georgia Winter Institute is a great collaboration between disability organizations. Labels are pushed aside and the joys and challenges of life are shared.
The Arc Georgia’s brand new website is a hub of important information and critical resources. You can also appreciation the photographic artistry of Ryan Johnson who captures so intensely the spirit of local advocates. Stay tuned…your photo may be posted next.
From Our Director
I joined The Arc Georgia as State Director just a few months ago, and have been on the road getting to know the great advocates at local chapters. I want to express great appreciation for the warm reception and special invitations to events I’ve attended in the last three months, including: the Albany ARC Awards Banquet, Board meetings with The Arc of Grady Thomas and The Arc Carroll County, a training with The Arc Douglas County, The Arc of Greater Columbus’ involvement at the Georgia Winter Institute, and a lively dance at The Arc Carroll County. Soon I will be delivering a keynote address with The Arc Macon. I’m looking forward to many successful collaborations with the Georgia chapters of The Arc in the months to come.
