Senator Edward R. Reilly paid a visit to Melwood’s Dower House Campus on August 9th.  During his campus tour Senator Reilly met a number of our direct support professionals and participants in our day services program.  It was a great opportunity for the Senator to witness firsthand the impact that our programs have on the people we serve and the community.  He expressed great interest in a number of our programs and services and he looks forward to collaborating on future endeavors.

Senator Reilly represents Maryland’s 33rd District, in Anne Arundel County. The Senator supports initiatives that protect the environment, expand the number of available jobs and continues the fight for higher education.
