DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The start of March means the beginning of Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, a time meant to recognize the contributions of individuals with disabilities and encourages the community to embrace working together.

Dennis Grant, Chief Executive Officer of URS shared details on how they are highlighting the many ways in which people with and without disabilities come together to form strong, diverse communities.

This month, United Rehabilitation Services (URS) will raise awareness for individuals with
disabilities with a variety of activities.

URS kicked off the month with a trip to the Statehouse in Columbus. Throughout March, local celebrities will read books to the children and adults of URS. Meanwhile, URS will showcase client artwork throughout its facility in the month of March.
