The Arc Baltimore Director Stephen Morgan Retires

May 4, 2017

When Stephen Morgan showed up in 1969, guitar in hand, to be a camp counselor at what is now The Arc-Baltimore, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities often lived in institutions, seldom on their own. Children with mental disabilities were not entitled to free, appropriate public education. Morgan has been head of The Arc Baltimore for three decades, and has witnessed big changes. Ahead of his retirement next month, we talk about what kinds of jobs make sense for people disabilities, what prompts businesses to hire them and what police need to understand about them.
