Raising awareness for services offered in Kingman and surrounding areas is a great way to bring the community together and make people more knowledgeable. Wednesday, February 6, Mohave County ARC hosted its Special Needs Fair.

 

This fair was an opportunity to learn about resources available in the community. Local area providers such as Mohave Mental Health, Arizona Talking Book Library, and Arizona Department of Health Services, were just a few resources available for adults and children with special needs. “It’s a resource fair. It’s all the different resources we offer in Kingman and we have 20 vendors here. So we have resources from everywhere and it’s a good program. It was done last year at the Mohave Fair but they didn’t have room this year, so we held it here. It’s our first time holding it here. We hope it’s a success. We’ve talked to a lot of people and a lot of people don’t know they have options, so it’s really good to find out all the options that you have,” says Stacey Hadley, Assistant Director of Mohave County Arc.

ARC of Mohave County is devoted to the standard that all developmentally disabled persons, regardless of disabilities, deserve the right to experience as quality and normal a life as possible. This entails offering to all members a variety and continuum of educational, vocational, and recreational community-based opportunities. ARC also has new programs that they offer including basic woodworking, horticulture, culinary arts and baking.
