DD Champion Award goes to Molly Elliott

 

The Oregon Council on Developmental Disabilities has awarded this year's DD Champion Award to Molly Elliott, current Vice President of KindTree-Autism Rocks, a local non-profit agency that provides services and supports  to individuals and their families experiencing autism. Congratulations, Molly!   

Before retiring from the city of Eugene's Adaptive Recreation Program, she spent over 40 years developing recreation programs for individuals with disabilities.  Her long career includes serving on local, state, and national boards and helping agencies establish inclusive recreation programs locally, nationally and internationally.    

She is currently working with KindTree-Autism Rocks on a new program called STiLE (Skill Training for an Independent Living Experience) which is designed for youth with disabilities transitioning from school to adult life.  These trainings focus on empowering young people to achieve their dreams with high expectations.  

Molly lives in Springfield with her family and graduated from the University of Oregon with degrees in English and Leisure Studies. 

Molly!
