April 2012 CPC Blog Post – Eli Ettinger

Growing up with a disability I was always aware of the different services that are available in the community but now that I am done with school I am trying to learn things more from an advocacy perspective. I have always been very passionate about the idea of reaching out and trying to help other people with disabilities achieve their goals.

I have been part of the CPC for about a year and a half and I have truly enjoyed my experience working with others on the council to ensure that Oregonians with disabilities have all of their needs and concerns addressed in order to be active and successful members of society. I believe wholeheartedly in the councils mission that, “The CPC serves as a primary mechanism for the voices and needs of Oregonians with disabilities, health issues and their families, friends and supporters”.
