To the editor:

Putnam County’s Brookhill Center and Industries offers support, encouragement and guidance services for families and individuals with developmental disabilities from early childhood through the senior citizen years. Such services allow developmentally disabled individuals to reach their utmost potential and to contribute to their community in many ways. These resources are extremely important for families dealing with the challenges of having a disabled child.

Through services, such as transportation, Special Olympics, group home supervision and Brookhill Industries each individual becomes more a part of our community and we are all enriched. I urge you to vote YES for the Brookhill Center Operations and Support Services Levy for existing services on May 6th.
