Welcome to Council 5!
Council 5 consists of Atlantic, Cape May, and Cumberland Counties. Council 5 supports people with disabilities to be their own advocates and to know their rights and responsibilities. We work on a variety of issues such as Person First Language, public outreach, advocating for improved transportation, promoting healthy living, voting, governmental affairs, and fundraising. Council 5 is dedicated to gaining respect and equal rights for all people with disabilities and to support them to live and thrive in the community. Our meetings are open to anyone who would like to join us. We meet on the third Wednesday of every month, from 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm.
Our last meeting took place on November 20, 2019.
Our next meeting will take place from 3:30pm-4:30pm on January 15, 2020 at The Arc of Atlantic County (6550 Delilah Rd #101, Egg Harbor Twp, NJ 08234)
