Community Membership

This week the blog was written by George Martin, President of The Arcadia Institute. What does it mean to you to be a community member?

• Having friends to enrich your life and support you

• Taking part in community activities you choose

• Making a contribution to others and being responsible for them

• Being respected for who you are and what you bring to the community

• Having a job and/or taking part in pursuits that hold meaning for you

Sounds exactly like what community membership means to people with disabilities.
