P.A.C.E. Events

P.A.C.E. stands for Partnering for Awareness and Community Education

Each year the NGCDD partners with communities across the state to host free public Partnering For Awareness and Community Education (P.A.C.E.) events that educate and inform individuals with intellectual / developmental disabilities, their families and professionals about services and supports available in their community.

Community is where we live, work and play. It’s where our most basic needs are met and where we turn for help. People need to know what supports are available to them and that they are not alone within their communities. These PACE events help achieve that goal. Contact us for more information and stay tuned for details about upcoming events!
