Who are The Adaptables?
No other resource offers the array of services and cross disability expertise that we provide. Our goals are simply to encourage people to make good choices and exercise control over their own lives, to expand access to information and resources, to increase their independence, and to improve the quality of their lives.
The Adaptables Staff works to alleviate barriers that keep people with disabilities from full participation in their community.
Working with both community partners and service providers, we provide awareness and education by promoting consumer choices.
Staff provides Technical Assistance regarding compliance with the ADA building specifications on new construction or existing structures being remodeled or rehabilitated, including accessible parking requirements, ramp elevations and entrance/exit widths, etc.
