The state council selected disAbility Resource Center of the Rappahannock to plant the seeds of this new center in the four-county area. Culpeper Human Services Director Lisa Peacock has given presentations about it to RRCS and Aging Together, according to a release.

However, it does not seem that the information has reached people with disabilities or older people who could use the services of a Center for Independent Living, according to a recent release. Are you a person with a disability, family member, caregiver, advocate, interested community member or with a non-profit or an agency? The planning group wants to hear what you think.

Culpeper residents can learn more by taking part in a virtual meeting at 3:30 p.m. on May 19. A person can come and just listen. For the invite, contact ebeane@cildrc.org or 540/360-5023. For information, contact the disAbility Resource Center of the Rappahannock at 540/373-2559.
