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.
