I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have seen the results of our actions in the community! We have trained individuals to live more independently! We have located housing, jobs, benefits and other requests. We have built ramps and done home modifications. We are constantly monitoring accessibility in our area. We have toured the courts, lodgings, parks, new builds etc. making sure that the ADA is followed. We work closely with the cities and counties as well as other non-profit organizations in our area.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Make it bigger!!! We strive to be a model CIL (center for independent living). We have waiting lists for all of our employees. In the last 47K budget cut we lost an employee with a disability!! I would never have that happen again!!!
