As challenging as it is, to physical distance from people we care about, people with developmental disabilities have been stepping up to help support the people around them.

Ana Wright, Community Support Network Liaison, received a heartfelt letter from Emily Harper.  Emily lives with her home share provider, Grace Schock, and her family.  Over the past eight weeks, they have been very creative while physically distancing during the pandemic, and Emily has so kindly shared some of the fun interactive ideas they have been up to.

As Ana expressed, “receiving this letter was the highlight of my day, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did”.
