Who’s Taking Care in Community this week:
“accessABILITY has been taking care of the community by providing free services to people with disabilities for more than 30 years. A person just has to self-identify with having a disability to receive a number of services from help with locating housing to assistance with their public benefits, all free of charge. accessABILITY also educates Central Indiana about disability awareness by providing the information and knowledge necessary to ensure the acceptance, respect, and inclusion of everyone.”
