The nonprofit organization, Center for Independent Living of Central PA (CILCP), is seeking nominations for its first Central PA's Living Well With A Disability Awards.
The Awards will recognize individuals and organizations in the Central PA area that truly demonstrate what it means to live well with a disability.
Living Well With A Disability was developed by the Center for Independent Living of Central PA to open doors to new opportunities for people with disabilities, and assist them in finding the resources they need to live well. Whether it's finding transportation, or assistive technology for your job, Living Well With A Disability is designed to meet each individual's needs to live independently.
Theo Braddy, Executive Director of CILCP, states that the Awards have been developed to highlight the accomplishments of individuals with disabilities as well as honor the contributions of groups and volunteers.
"Our Living Well With A Disability program has been such a success that we wanted to take this opportunity to publicly acknowledge not only individuals with a disability that are fulfilling their own dreams and reaching their goals, but the organizations, groups, or volunteers that aid in empowering individuals to live well with a disability," says Braddy.
Nominations will be accepted for the following categories: individual with a disability (adult and youth); group (business and nonprofit); and volunteer. The individual, volunteer, or group must live or be located within Cumberland, Dauphin, Perry, Mifflin, or Juniata counties. A committee of selected judges, who are leaders in the disability community, will review all submissions and select a winner in each category. Winners will be announced during an awards ceremony on September 22.
Individuals may visit www.LivingWellWithADisability.org or call 717-731-1900 ext. 138 to obtain the nomination form and rules.
All nominations must be submitted by August 20, 2010 to Central PA's Living Well With A Disability Awards, 207 House Avenue, Suite 107, Camp Hill, PA 17011.
