March: Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

Willows Way Striving to Increase Awareness for
Developmental Disabilities, Available Programs in the Community

(St. Louis, MO, March 9, 2017) According to the National Organization on Disability/Louis Harris & Associates Survey of Americans with Disabilities, an estimated 2.5 million people in the United States have a developmental disability, and an estimated 20.3 million families in the United States have at least one member with a disability.

Unless people are personally affected in some way by a developmental disability, many don't realize just how many Americans and their families are impacted by the condition, and many more are not aware of the programs and resources in their own communities dedicated to assisting them, according to Joy Steele, Executive Director of Willows Way, a non-profit organization based in St. Charles, MO that provides residential and community support to adults with developmental disabilities. 

"As part of Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month in March, we want to inform people about available programs that promote independence and dignity for adults and their families living with a developmental disability," said Steele. "At Willows Way, we believe all people with developmental disabilities who seek the kind of personalized support that nurtures the body, mind, and spirit will experience a sense of home, a feeling of security, and an avenue for personal growth in the community."
