Community Access Unlimited

Under the umbrella of the Association for the Advancement of the Mentally Handicapped (AAMH), Executive Director Sidney Blanchard founds Community Access Unlimited (formerly AAMH-Union) with a $90,000 grant to move 20 individuals with developmental disabilities from state institutions and place them in the community. In its infancy, Blanchard operated the agency from his Volkswagen Beetle.
