March is National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month!

“Ability at Work” is the theme for this year’s Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. UCP of Greater Cleveland and many other organizations celebrate Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month in March, and we invite you to consider the true meaning of this year’s theme, “Ability at Work!”

The goal this year is to raise public awareness of the many abilities people have, regardless of disability. “Ability at Work” encourages people to understand that when people with disabilities are welcomed into local neighborhoods, workplaces and schools, everybody wins.

During Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, we encourage everyone to learn more about the people in our community who have developmental disabilities and to recognize that all of us have talents and abilities that we can offer to make Northeast Ohio a better place to live. You’ll learn that when we work together, our communities are stronger and we accomplish more!
