Community life and participation is the focus of ADEC’s Mission. We are neighbors, friends, coworkers, business associates, teammates, consumers, students and public servants. We build relationships by being active in our community and by sharing our stories of struggles and success.
Throughout the Elkhart County area, ADEC clients and staff help make others aware that barriers do exist for those who live with disabilities. But they also demonstrate that those barriers can be removed simply by the power of participation.
The people who use our services are very much involved in their communities. They work in factories, offices, and retail businesses throughout the area. They are volunteers for public service organizations. They play in organized team and individual sports.
Just like anyone else all they need are the opportunities.
We invite our friends and neighbors to share in ADEC’s mission. Community awareness presentations in schools, churches, businesses and service groups show others that opportunity and inclusion build strong relationships. Just by opening the door of opportunity or lending a helping hand those in our community become part of the ADEC family.
