The Growing Need
“People with Disabilities: A Texas Profile” indicates there are 297,255 individuals with a special need in Bexar County, or 15-percent of the total population. Adding the special needs populations of the seven contiguous counties (Atascosa, Wilson, Kendall, Comal, Medina, Bandera, Guadalupe) increases the total to 369,558, also 15-percent of the combined population of the seven counties. Similar totals exist in other areas of the state and nation. This is a population that has not been fully addressed or carved out as a focus group at the local, state and national level. The MAC at Morgan’s Wonderland™ aims to change that by bringing awareness to the needs of this population and providing a model built for them.
It is our fervent hope that successful implementation of The MAC at Morgan’s Wonderland Care Model™ will encourage other communities to adopt a collaborative, coordinated health-care effort to assist their citizens with special needs.
