In a new PIX 11 segment, Changemakers, ADAPT Community Network, formerly UCP of NYC, was featured.
“I want people to know that we’re regular people!” It’s a strong, simple message Denikah Prescod hopes will resonate. She said, “People are always afraid to ask me about certain things because of my disability.” The-26 year-old is trying to change that perception, creatively. She’s exploring her artistry in Inwood at one of the many ADAPT Community Network locations. “It’s really hard having a disability so it’s kind of good having a place like this to just come and be around the same people as you,” she smiled.
