Our Care Matters

Remarkable stories from individuals and families impacted by an intellectual/developmental disability

“In the quiet corridors of everyday life, there exists a profound tapestry of stories waiting to be heard – stories that demand our attention. I am honored to present the stories of Our Care Matters, our initiative that shares the experiences of Floridians living with developmental disabilities and those who care for them. Through this powerful video series, we aim to engage decision-makers, weaving together real stories that underscore the significance of understanding, empathy, and meaningful change.”
