Empowering those with Developmental Disabilities
Dawn Trapp holds a degree in travel and tourism, but her life-work has taken her on a “journey” of a different kind.
When she first started as a volunteer with Camp Civitan, it was a 15-acre wheelchair accessible facility in Williams, AZ that offered programs for children and adults with developmental disabilities, operating on a budget of $250,000 year.
In 2001 she became the first executive director of the Civitan Foundation, and today the organization has a budget of $7 million that provides statewide programs focusing on education, nutrition and health, life skills, socialization, job training employment, and respite/habilitation/attendant care services that work with more than 300 members each and every day.
