Pathfinder Services, City of Huntington, and City of Wabash Join Forces to Celebrate Disability Awareness Month

Posted 03/01/2021

HUNTINGTON, IN - Pathfinder Services, the City of Huntington, and the City of Wabash are collaborating to celebrate Disability Awareness Month in March with several scheduled events.

Activities begin with a Proclamation by Huntington Mayor Richard Strick on Monday, March 8 at 3:00 p.m. at Pathfinder Services at 2824 Theater Avenue in Huntington.

“Across the State of Indiana, this marks the 31st year for communities to hold events to help raise awareness and understanding of difficulties people with disabilities face each day,”

says Danielle Tips, President and CEO of Pathfinder Services.

“We know that not all disabilities are visible, so through events we have scheduled, we are encouraging all Hoosiers to take an active role in the support and inclusion of people with disabilities.”

Beginning Monday, March 8 through Friday, March 12, Spirit Week will take place with different colors representing different disabilities each day. Everyone is encouraged to wear yellow on Monday to highlight Communication Disabilities, blue on Tuesday for Intellectual Disabilities, green on Wednesday for Psychological Disabilities, orange on Thursday for Physical Disabilities, and Purple every Friday in March for Disability Awareness Month in general.

Other events In Huntington include story time with Mayor Strick at Pathfinder Kids Kampus and a collaborative art project with Mayor Strick and artists served by Pathfinder Community Supports at Creative Abilities in the Café of Hope.

In Wabash, we will have two news conferences and official ribbon-cuttings for our new office on South Cass Street and our new group home on Half Street with Mayor Scott Long and others involved with the projects.

Here is a Full Schedule and List of Events.

All events are open to the public and to the media.
