Most crimes involve at least one victim and one perpetrator. But behind this familiar pairing are thousands more Arizonans who suffer in the shadows as families and friends of both victims and offenders – notably including children growing up with at best a part-time mother or father.

ADDPC has launched a new statewide collaborative project to better engage people with developmental disabilities, their families and their communities on issues related to employment, health, and social connection.
