We are Real People, with Real Stories
We are children, teens and adults with complex medical needs along with developmental and intellectual disabilities receiving significant supports from Richmond.
We are your neighbors. Most of us use a wheelchair so we can be mobile. Most of us cannot speak and many of us use augmentative communication devices to communicate. Many of us also use assistive technology so we can control basic things in our environment, like turning on or off lights, the TV or a radio. Some of us participate in Richmond’s day programs; others work or attend school. We are all active members of the Westchester community.
“I’m much more independent now (that I live at Richmond) than when I lived with my grandmother. I work three days a week. The staff here at Richmond helps me out with a lot of stuff…advising me how to become even more independent,”
Chlarese, Richmond Resident
