TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Closing the gap. That's what the Disability Resource Fair looked to do this weekend.

Saturday was the first resource fair held by The Will Center and Happiness Bag in Terre Haute.

The fair allowed individuals and their families to meet with service providers and businesses, all who support those with disabilities in our community.

Trevor Baldwin is president of the Indiana Association for the Deaf.

He says the event makes him feel inspired.

"I feel excellent. I feel fantastic. I'm so moved and inspired to come here and share with everybody, show and meet other people, and allow them to learn about ASL as well and the deaf community. It makes me feel really good," said Baldwin.

Event organizers say they hope to continue the fair for many years to come.
