This 15-minute video is a touching personal look into the home of a person with intellectual disabilities who has successfully transitioned from an institution to a life in the community. Charity is one of more than 6,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities living successfully in Alabama communities. The video takes the viewer inside a typical day in the life of Charity and includes interviews with her team of caregivers. According to her parents, the social, recreational and educational activities Charity participates in these days would not have been possible inside an institution.
"A Day with Charity" is ultimately an anti-stigma tool, showing that people with intellectual disabilities can and do live more productive and fulfilling lives in their communities.
