Merakey Presents at Disability Summit
On March 3, Merakey participated the Disability & Mental Health Summit hosted by Representative Dan Miller. The day celebrated the 30th anniversary of the American with Disabilities Act and brought together hundreds of participants for workshops and to learn about community resources.
Staff Development Executive Carol Erzen and Pathfinder Elizabeth Humphrey participated in the presentation “Living My Good Life – How It’s Achievable.” When speaking about the life she is now leading Elizabeth stated, “I am so grateful to have this. I am living my life and I’m able to spread my wings!” Community member Lisa Humphreys attended the presentation, which was toward the very end of the day, and commented, “The day has been a lot about legislation. It’s great to see people turn it around and talk about hope.”
