Albany--  Accomplishments and achievements of people with special needs were honored Tuesday night at the Hilton Garden Inn.

The Albany Advocacy Resource Center has helped people with disabilities since the early 1960's. Tuesday night, they honored those consumers for their accomplishments whether it was transitioning from a state hospital or showing improvement in life skills.  

"Just giving them the opportunities that we do at AARC, they grow and become productive citizens of this community," said AARC Executive Director Annette Bowling.

"I think it's very important both personally and for them to be a part of the community and for the community to recognize and embrace the people that we serve," said AARC Assistant Director Sandra Edge.

This was the 29th Annual Awards banquet.
