People Power of Howard County is a proud partner of Empowering Partners. The Arc Maryland, in partnership with People On The Go Maryland and the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Council, launched Empowering Partners to raise awareness about the value of self-advocacy and to reconvene or strengthen self-advocacy groups throughout the state. Empowering Partners serves as the foundation for self-advocacy groups in Maryland, including People Power of Howard County. Self-advocacy groups share the Empowering Partners discussion topics, activities, and a unified movement to grow from and build on.
