Making Our Voices Heard: Developmental Disabilities Day 2016
DD Day 2016 was a success! The Arc Prince George's staff, clients, families and friends, along with 21 other county agencies joined together in Annapolis for an opportunity to advance the grassroots movement for people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. A major highlight was The Arc Prince George's Team rallying for Bill HB 1200 (formerly PG 414-16), which will ensure developmental disabilities services providers located in Prince George's County's pay rate is the same percentage above the county minimum wage rate as community direct service workers outside the county are paid above the State minimum wage.

Saying Thank You, It's a Work of Art!
The main hall of The Arc Prince George's County has become home to a colorful, festive work of art that, by taking a closer look, includes a message to all who come to visit...THANK YOU.
The artwork was created during a 16-week long Art Workshop during the Spring of 2015 with teacher Rachel Cross through the Brentwood Art Exchange Workshop Partnership. The Laurel, Temple Hills, and Largo Day Centers also participated in the project. The mural was also on display at Artomatic in Prince George's County, from October-December 2015.
So, to the talented artists and teachers who worked diligently and meticulously worked together to make The Arc Prince George's a little brighter, we say...Thank You!
