Our Community Services

Community Services serves hundreds of individuals each year by providing Technical assistance, individual and organizational outreach, community awareness programs and systems advocacy.

Through our efforts, we educate the community about our services. Our Community Awareness and Educational Programs provide information and education to schools, businesses, civic and charity groups. We also provide Technical Assistance consulting services to local businesses, organizations and municipalities who need assistance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and compliance with other accommodation and accessibility requirements.

The Community Advocate worked with us as a partner to analyze our needs, provide information and support Committee members. She attended meetings and testified at hearings. Thanks to IN’s efforts, my town is finally taking serious steps to achieve compliance. Right side quote mark, Independence Northwest end quote marker
