A golden celebration
County group marks 50 years of service to developmentally disabled residents
"It started as nine Douglas County couples seeking better opportunities for
their children, who had developmental disabilities before even public schools
Now it’s 50 years of history that has helped heighten social awareness and open
new doors for residents with disabilities in Douglas County and Kansas.
Thursday evening at a 1950s-style sock hop at Maceli’s, 1031 N.H., members of
The Arc of Douglas County honored its founders and celebrated a half century of
providing services and advocating for clients and their families.
“If you look around, it definitely would not be like this 50 years ago,” said
Barbara Bishop, executive director of The Arc of Douglas County since 1997.
“People with disabilities were either kept at home away from a community that
didn’t understand them, or they had to be locked in an institution.”
Kathy Lobb was born with cerebral palsy, but for seven years she has met with
legislators through her job at Arc and the Self Advocate Coalition of Kansas and
discussed issues and services that involve the disabled."
