Dwills007 [The Movement] • July 14th, 2009
My name is Darryl Williams
I come to be in Colorado through a program called the underground railroad. This program was created to help those that was really facing a situation.
Such as being in a nursing home. Not having the proper help in the home with a family member. Something that a person with a disability could very well face throughout they injury.
I was one of those people faced with that situation ! I moved to Colorado seven years ago. In the pursuit of being independent. My life has changed tremendously. In more ways than one. I come from a situation. Where I spent nine years in the bed. Not by my decision.
Colorado was a new beginning for me. In being independent on a whole new level. That I did not think was possible. I learned everything I possibly could when I got here. Volunteering my time to various organizations. Just soaking up all the information I possibly could.
Knowing that if I put myself in the right position. I could put my life back together. And I could live the way that I wanted to. And pursue dreams and things that I’ll always thought about.
Wanting to do more I pursue other opportunities. Such as moving people here from Memphis, Tennessee. That really wanting to be independent like me.
I learned that being very knowledgeable. About what’s going on in the disabled community could lead me to my dreams. That’s why I would like my corner to be that place that keeps you informed. It’s time for us as a disabled community. To share information .
Such as is section 8 taking applications. Could you help me find a accessible apartment. What kind of programs out there for kids with a disability. Maybe you’re looking for funds for a accessible vehicle. Maybe someone needs to know where a food bank is. This is the type of information that the disabled community should be sharing. This is a wonderful website to do just that. And if you cannot find the information here. Then I will find it. And posted it on our site. I am available Friday from nine o’clock to 12 o’clock at Pasco. If you seek information that cannot be found on our website. Let me be your information Center. This is Darryl Williams corner. And you’ve just been informed.
