Advocate of the Month
January Spotlight on Advocacy
Dennis Ross is back to making his own decisions after recovering from illness last year.
Dennis completed advocacy training in 2015. The skills he learned back then helped him determine that he wanted to leave the group home where he was living recently for health issues and return to his residence where he can enjoy more freedom.
With the help of his guardian, Dennis decides which services he wants and what day programs to attend. Most days he works on the looms at The Studio at Union Station, making beautiful rag rugs. In the summer, he also enjoys mowing his lawn on his riding lawnmower.
Dennis is a member of the Logan County Board of DD Aktion Club, where he volunteers for many projects. He is also a member of the Logan County Agricultural Society and regularly attends Logan County Fair Board meetings. Last March, Dennis was presented with the Logan County Board of DD Pioneer Award, for being one of the original individuals to receive DD services in Logan County.
