Liberty Corner strives to support the rights of people with developmental disabilities through our Human Rights Committee.
The Rights Committee includes members otherwise unaffiliated with Liberty Corner in order to insure a bias-free environment. They review and address possible rights violations or other issues to protect the rights of the people we support.
Human Right Committee Members:
Carole Graham Williams: I retired from 40 years of service with the N.C. Division of Services for the Blind. I currently works part-time as a note-taker at AB Tech for a Hard of Hearing Student. Liberty Corner Enterprises has impressed me with their dedication to allowing every single individual, no matter what or how severe their disabilities, the opportunity to live as full and independent a life as they can and choose to live. The first time I encountered their philosophy, was when a coworker and I went there with a young man who was totally deaf, blind, profoundly developmentally delayed and for whom we had been seeking services to include employment. All other agencies had refused, stating that the young man was too “handicapped” to work. At LCE, we were told what an “asset” this person would be to their program. They then proceeded to assist him in finding a job that he enjoyed and even offered him a choice. Since then, they have been at the top of my list.
Linda McDaniel: I work as the Advocate and Community Resource Specialist for the Arc of Buncombe County. I choose to serve on the LCE Human Right Committee to ensure that each individual receives all rights that they are entitled to. Individuals no matter what their disability, deserves a life of dignity, choice and opportunity. Each individual should have optimum care and services .
