The Arc of Greater Tarrant County will partner with the local faith‐based community to initiate a partnership designed to enhance and facilitate full inclusiveness of people with an IDD diagnosis into faith communities of their choice. Two faith‐based symposiums, over three years, will be developed and held to share information on inclusive practices. Each participating group will return to their community with an implementation plan, supports, follow‐up and the charge to assist other groups in duplicating their efforts.
