Empowering Self-Advocates

HEATH, Ohio -- Shena Lemons wants her voice to be heard.
And as a person with a developmental disability, she has a lot to say about improving the lives of disabled Licking County residents.
"I want people to know how to help people with disabilities in the work place, in church and in the community," she said.
So Lemons jumped at the chance to join People First, a new self-advocacy group sponsored by the Licking County Board of Developmental Disabilities.
