Margaret “Peggy” Bullock Geier, LADD's first president, founded Stepping Stones, a program that provides pathways to independence for people of all ages, and was also involved in United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cincinnati. Peggy and fellow founders launched LADD in 1975 to serve adults with disabilities. “They changed the world for people with disabilities,” says Vallie Geier, Peggy’s daughter-in law.
Members are keeping Peggy’s dream alive, which was to provide her daughter and adults with developmental disabilities with the chance to lead a fulfilling and independent lives that everyone deserves, regardless of disability.
