Living Arrangements for the Developmentally Disabled will host its fifth annual Taking Flight Awards to celebrate the accomplishments of adults with developmental disabilities and those who have supported them on their journey to independence.

These awards celebrate all of them.”

Taking Flight honorees will include Spirit of Independence Award, Dale Jackson; So That Others May Fly Award, Jennifer Crowe; Courage to Fly Award, the family of Patrick Ryan; Above and Beyond Award, Shannice Clark; Employer Excellence Award, George H.
