Community Inclusion Project
Improve access to technology and provide online programs to support continuing education, engagement, and inclusion for people with developmental disabilities (DD) who may experience isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic
Through Community Inclusion projects, organizations will create opportunities and address barriers so people with disabilities can experience full community life. Full community inclusion is defined as participating in education, employment, and social activities in the community alongside people both with and without disabilities. Ultimately, the goal of these projects is to produce short-term and long-term systems change.
The Arc of the Capital Area will partner with Dell Technologies to provide people with DD with computers and other technology equipment so they can participate in online art and education classes. The project will support people with DD in accessing community engagement and educational resources while practicing social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
