Clallam County Board of Commissioners announced on Oct. 5 its participation and proclamation of National Disability Employment Awareness Month.

The purpose of National Disability Employment Awareness Month is to educate the community about how individuals with disabilities, both physical and intellectual, contribute to their community through gaining stable and ongoing employment.

“We celebrate the many varied contributions that every individual can provide to their community and we support the unique talent and dedication that those who experience developmental disabilities can offer employers,” said Kelley Lawrence, Clallam County Health & Human Services County Coordinator for Developmental Disabilities.
