Adults with Disabilities Work it Out

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - His friends say Richard Williams is getting better at soccer.
Now he can practice right next door.
Williams, 58, lives at Spring Glen, a retirement community run by Residential Services Inc., which provides housing for a growing group of aging adults with developmental disabilities in Orange County.
This fall he gets to play soccer at the neighboring Weiss Activity Center, which opened last month on Mount Herman Church Road in eastern Orange County, north of Chapel Hill.
"I'll be able to play soccer more, probably," said Williams, who competes in the Special Olympics in soccer, basketball, track and swimming. "Plus I can practice here."
