Country music legend Reba McEntire has joined OPWDD's outreach campaign, which is designed to educate New Yorkers about services and supports available to individuals with developmental disabilities and their loved ones.

Reba, whose niece Haley has a developmental disability, has made access to services a cause she has spoken out on throughout her career. As she says in the public service announcement, "Today, a cause very near and dear to my heart is making sure that people with developmental disabilities and their loved ones know how to get the services and supports they need to live and enjoy their lives to the fullest."

No stranger to New York's developmental disabilities field, over the last 25 years, Reba has performed several benefit concerts in the North Country for the Disabled Persons Action Organization.

Reba has brought an enormous amount of national attention to the developmental disabilities field throughout her career, and it is wonderful that she has once again stepped forward to help individuals and families access the services they need. Reba is highly respected both personally and professionally. Her voice will help reach families in need, and her efforts will make a positive difference in their lives.
