After years of challenging times, Tim has overcome huge obstacles and he has blossomed. It took a desire to succeed, as well as help from friends, family, and The Arc, that led Tim to accomplish so much. He has been elected Treasurer of self-advocacy group, People First of Jeffco, and he’s a member of our chapter’s Outreach Advisory Council that provides opinions and feedback to the Outreach Team. He has traveled across Colorado with our statewide self-advocacy organization, Speaking For Ourselves – Colorado in order to participate in the self-advocacy movement. Yet another accomplishment is getting his first job! “I’ve achieved so much more than I ever thought was possible,” said Tim. He's now an outgoing guy with friends he sees regularly, who value him for exactly who he is and appreciate his jokes. Tim is the embodiment of The Arc’s tagline, "Achieve With Us."
