December 2021

Happy Holidays!

We hope that everyone had a safe Thanksgiving and will have equally safe and enjoyable holidays as we close out on year 2021. Hard to believe the year is winding down. As an organization, we will continue to adapt, doing what we can to provide services and programs to those in need in a safe manner. We are looking forward to next year and the opportunities it will bring to continue growing and serving people with disabilities throughout Jackson, Lenawee, and Hillsdale Counties.

As snow starts to be a constant in our lives, it is important for towns and businesses to take necessary steps for access.

Snow accumulation on sidewalks, curb ramps, parking spots, and parking lots can mean the difference between getting groceries and medication, going to work, going to the bus stop or being stuck inside. Snow removal is vital to the life and independence of people with disabilities. Setting internal standards and procedures for snow removal are key. If you use a snow removal company, talk to them about where the snow CANNOT go. Doing these simple steps can ensure your business is in compliance with the law and taking steps to be a local disability-friendly establishment.

Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act requires any covered business to maintain accessible features including accessible parking spaces and the accessible route from the parking space to the main entrance, which means access aisles, curb cuts, and sidewalks. A business must also maintain an accessible route from a bus stop to its entrance.
