Bartolotta visits community
On March 16, state Sen. Camera Bartolotta visited two homes operated by Community Options – a two-bedroom home in Canonsburg and a one-bedroom home in McMurray. Bartolotta spent time speaking with the residents to learn about the services they receive from Community Options. “I am grateful to Community Options for providing me with the opportunity to visit with these residents and learn more about their day-to-day lives and experiences in the community,” said Bartolotta, who represents District 46 in the Pennsylvania State Senate, and is a member of the Community, Economic & Recreational Development Committee. Community Options Inc., is a national nonprofit in its 30th year of serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities by providing residential and employment support services.
