Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano joined AHRC Nassau in declaring October National Disability Awareness Month. More than 50 employers attended the “Inclusion Works” event, at AHRC Nassau’s Freeport training facility, which celebrates the contributions of workers with disabilities and educates employers about the value of a diverse workforce inclusive of skills and talents.

On Oct. 20, Mangano and AHRC Nassau will illuminate the dome of the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building in support of National Disability Employment Awareness Month. AHRC Nassau was established in 1949, during a time where most people with developmental disabilities were relegated to institutions or hidden away at home.

Today, AHRC Nassau supports 10,500 individuals with intellectual and other developmental disabilities through a wide array of supports including residential services, adult day habilitation and community-based services, vocational and employment services, guardianship, family support services and recreation opportunities. AHRC strives to teach, support and advocate for children and adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities to make life choices, exercise independence and develop responsibility.
