Speaker: Kevin Johnson, Executive Director 

Kevin C. Johnson is the Executive Director of Magnify of Central Florida (formerly Bishop Grady Villas). Kevin is responsible for the vision, strategy, fundraising and advocacy efforts for Magnify. He has over 21 years experience in residential, employment, life skills development, and transition services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). As Executive Director, Kevin advocates at the state and national level for expansion of supports, service models, and legislative priorities for I/DD. His expertise includes the Home and Community Based Settings (HCBS) rule, the iBudget Waiver, Employment and Transition supports, and Assisted Living Services as a residential model for those who experience I/DD. Kevin serves as a gubernatorially appointed council member and chair of the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council (FDDC), past-chair of the Florida Association of Rehabilitation Facilities (FARF), board member at the National Catholic Partnership on Disability, and on the board of Morning Star Catholic School in Orlando.

The purpose of our community spotlight events is to share models of high quality I/DD communities across the country, so that those of you who are looking to create or expand an I/DD community can learn from various examples.  There are many different ways to serve individuals with I/DD.  No one size fits all.  What may work for your loved ones may not work for others and vice versa.  The key is to learn from those who have gone through this process.  Their successes and failures can teach us so much and we do not have to reinvent the wheels!
