The Ability Center, Lucas County Special Olympics recognized

COLUMBUS, Feb. 20, 2020:  This week, state Sens. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) and Theresa Gavarone (R-Toledo) presented two organizations in Lucas County—The Ability Center and the Lucas County Special Olympics—with Senate Resolutions.

The Ability Center of Greater Toledo, which this year celebrates its 100th anniversary, helps people with disabilities live independent lives by providing them with resources such as service dogs, medical equipment and community living. The center also partners with local businesses, organizations, and government agencies to eliminate barriers that prevent people with disabilities from living and working in the community.

“When I think about all the people they have served, including my family, I know they provide a tremendous increase on the quality of life—not only for individuals with disabilities, but for the entire family,” Fedor said.

“The Ability Center’s work is unparalleled,” Gavarone said. “Its focus on ensuring that everyone it serves learns independent living skills and can easily transition to college or the workforce is incredibly beneficial to countless people.”

The senators also recognized the Lucas County Special Olympics flag football team—the Lucas County Lightning—which won the 2019 State Championship game last fall.
