December 3rd is International Day of Persons with Disabilities! Today we are celebrating the achievements of Mike, a participant in our Independent Living Services (ILS) program for the past 16 years. Mike works at the Safeway in Lafayette and likes to cook chicken noodle soup at home. A few years ago, Judy, our director of ILS, took Mike on a tour of the San Francisco Channel 7 and 5 studios, where he learned how to be the weather man for the day.
On this International Day of Persons with Disabilities, we show support for and a commitment to creating inclusive, accessible, and diverse communities so people with disabilities can participate fully, equally, and effectively in society with others.
