Written by Ann Mathisen Friday, 31 July 2009 00:00
Life tastes sweeter when basic needs are met. What many people take for granted – a home, a job, a friend, a productive life in the community – might not be the case for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities. In 1974 the Brenner family established Community Mainstream Associates, (CMA) and provided the impetus for its purpose and philosophy.
