Community Based Services has created a team of staff, persons with disabilities and community members to work for community inclusion. Our group, called Link Inc. (a link to inclusion) is helping individuals with disabilities establish friendships and become more involved in the community.
It is the mission and purpose of Link Inc. to advance a positive and true image of persons with disabilities and to create opportunities for individuals with disabilities to be included as participating members of the community.
Our primary goals are
- To educate the community and break down barriers.
- To create opportunities for people in the community to get to know persons with disabilities on a more personal level.
- To support individuals with disabilities so they can find ways to participate in the community.
- To create opportunities where friendships between persons with and without disabilities might develop.
