September 30th marked the end of State Council on Developmental Disabilities’ Cycle 36 Grants. In 2014, GET SAFE worked with Area Board 12 (serving Inyo, Mono, Riverside and San Bernardino counties) and Area Board 13 (serving San Diego and Imperial Counties) to educate persons with developmental disabilities and community service members on two very important topics: self-advocacy and community awareness about developmental disabilities.
Area Board 12
The goal of this project was to engage persons with developmental disabilities and and educate them about self-advocacy and how to start a consumer-led group in their areas. This summer, GET SAFE hosted four main training events in Blythe, Bishop, Ontario and Norco. These fun events were held at entertaining venues, such as the city pool, Dave & Buster’s, and a bowling alley, and served as an opportunity
