PDS in Action
In 2009, 2010 and 2011, PDS clients were filmed for “The Awareness Project”, which is an online training program for our staff members and others. We compiled some of the footage into this short video, which illustrates our clients with developmental disabilities living life to its fullest as productive and accepted members of their community.

In 2012 Lisa Markey was honored by the Jefferson Awards. A recognition system honoring community and public service in America.
In 2010 PDS was featured with our client Sallie Harrison in ABC7's Emmy award-winning public affairs show, "Beyond the Headlines," which provides in-depth coverage of the topics and issues facing the people of the Bay Area. The topic was "Living with Disabilities" and PDS specifically addressed "Lifestyle Issues" and highlighted the importance of community inclusion, integration, choice and opportunities: http://abc7.com/archive/7430313/
