I like the way the said everyone needs to belong. I want the world to be a place where everyone is treated fairly.’ - Sierra
Can we ask them to come again? -Tiegan.
We need more groups like this in our world. The HSCC methodology is - they believe that individuals with developmental disabilities should experience a sense of belonging everywhere they go. They advocate and educate and we all agree 100% that we need more people in our world who will advocate for our amazing community.
