Building Community Connections
Hearing real stories from others can give each of us inspiration and hope as we work to build a better life and overcome obstacles that some days, may seem insurmountable. To help, we're gathering and sharing an ever-growing collection of stories about people in our community to show the wide range of things that are possible. Below you'll find stories of people across a wide spectrum of personal talents and challenges doing all kinds of things – from the simple day-to-day victories to the incredible. People with disabilities, no matter how complex, are sharing their lives with their friends, families, coworkers, and neighbors. No one has to do this alone.
If you’re looking to make friends, get involved with your neighbors and community, or do good things for others, you don’t have to wait! Here are a few ways to get started:
- Join or ask to join things – there are so many social clubs, events, and volunteer opportunities.
- Can’t join something? Start a club or an event.
- Find a way to give to others, whether it’s a small thank you card, coffee, or a warm hello – it’s a great way to start talking to someone new.
- Feel like you need help? Call Ann Myres at (513) 559-6876 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you or someone you know has a story that can inspire others, send it to us and we might share it here. Your story can be video, audio, or written. Reach out to Ryan at email@example.com for more info.
