May is Community Living Month – Join the Celebration!
During the month of May we have several events planned to celebrate the abilities of people and to bring awareness to the need for enhanced supports and services.
Community Living Facebook and Twitter Overlays
We can spread awareness of the Community Living Movement online through a social media app called Twibbon. Download the custom overlay, which will enable you to prominently display the starburst, the Community Living logo and tagline on their Facebook or Twitter profile photos.
