The GCDE Community Outreach Subcommittee travels to two communities every year.
“GCDE members are interested in learning everything we can about the lives of people with disabilities in the Port Orchard area,” said Damiana Harper, subcommittee chair. “We want to hear both the challenges, as well as the success stories. What is your community doing well, and where does it need to improve?”
The GCDE will share your top three or four concerns with local elected officials, service providers, and leaders in the disability community to prioritize and strategize.
