  • PEOPLE FIRST

    PEOPLE FIRST OF TOLEDO

    MISSION

    To learn to advocate for ourselves and to learn to let people know what we need in order to do the things we want to do. We need to let them know how they can help us. Also to realize we have responsibilities to give back to society and contribute all we can to it.

    People First began in Ohio in 1998 by a group of self-advocates who wanted to improve their abilities to represent themselves and to train others to be self-advocates. There are many chapters throughout Ohio, including a statewide organization.

     

    Local Chapter Members work for better public transportation, curb cuts, parks with adaptive equipment, and making buildings accessible. Members also do service projects, volunteer in the community, and discuss disability issues at community meetings.

    Become a member today! For only $5.00 per meeting, you can become a member and receive voting privileges at People First meetings, access to advocacy conferences, summer picnics, holiday parties – all while working towards making your own choices about your life.
