Meet Dan & Leah

Please watch this video from The  Arc of Minnesota.     Arc of Minnesota. The Arc Minnesota is committed to a future where people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are seen for who they are - capable, tenacious, caring, loving, and resilient. Self-Advocates work together to make a difference in their communities and improve lives. People with disabilities want to show their strengths and persevere through tough times. Leah & Dan Hood met at a self-advocacy conference and were immediately drawn to one another. They have been married for 2 years and live on the east side of St. Paul with their leopard gecko, Spotty. For Leah & Dan, independence is critical, but it's not without challenges. Together, they explore their dreams and let their true selves shine through. "I want to be treated like everybody else - with dignity," Dan says. "So, I will be able to show my true self." Interested in finding out more about Arc Minnesota? Please go. http
