Congratulations to Cara and Heather for presenting their work with Integrate for Good on a National Stage in Orlando last week!  This is what empowerment is all about!  With the support of the Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council and all of YOU, we secured the funding needed to provide this incredible opportunity for Heather and Cara to share our innovative work here in PA from coast to coast!

Heather's mom, Robin summed up the importance of these opportunities.

"Forty-seven years ago, when Heather was born, I never would have dreamed of the day I would watch Heather speak at a national conference! It was certainly a thrill seeing her beaming at the Integrate for Good presentation. Heather’s involvement in this organization has opened up a whole new world for her, and we are all so appreciative! Memories of this experience will be cherished always!"
