Disability Programs: Everyone counts

Beverly Nunn is the program director for three programs here at West Central that serve people with disabilities. They are Pathways to Employment/Community Access and Learning Skills Center.

The programs have about 90 to 95 participants, ages 16 to almost 90.

A community center should include programs for people with disabilities, because they are community members who can contribute in many ways.

Beverly said, "We're one car ride away from being in a wreck and being disabled ourselves. We should always respect people with disabilities. We're no better than them."

"In my book, they have as just much right to be valuable citizens. And they do. Do I love them? Yes."
