The blog this week was written by Dr. Allison Hammond, Executive Director of The Arcadia Institute. The main purpose for the existence of The Arcadia Institute is to make the community welcoming, supportive and respectful of people who experience disability. We do this in three ways:
1. Work with individuals to discover their talents and skills and where the want to participate in the community
2. Work with organizations who are committed to equity, diversity and inclusion for people who experience disability
3. Facilitate Connect Kalamazoo which is a network of organizations who work toward making Kalamazoo a community where everyone belongs.
