The holiday giving season is just around the corner - can you believe it?  Kick it off by participating in Giving Tuesday!

Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday.  Join us for Giving Tuesday on Tuesday, November 27.  Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving back.  On the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, people around the globe and in our community will come together to celebrate generosity and make an impact.

You can help raise funds and awareness about the vital work we do creating more inclusive and welcoming communities for everyone to share their gifts and talents.

Disability is part of the natural human experience.  Did you know, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 4 U.S. adults - 61 million Americans - have a disability that impacts major life activities?  Many of the difficulties faced by people with disabilities are a result of attitudes and environments, not the disability, and YOU can help!

We are the first stop for people with disabilities and work along-side them as they navigate their life goals and dreams.  You can help change the perceptions, communities and lives of the many individuals and their loved ones with disabilities in our northern Michigan community!

Accessibility Statement:

Disability Network Northern Michigan is committed to making its website accessible to the widest possible audience. This website has been developed to comply under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, which was enacted to eliminate barriers to information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities and to encourage the development of new technologies to help achieve these goals. This law requires that all individuals with disabilities have access to information and data comparable to that which is available to individuals without disabilities.

DisabilityNetwork.org is regularly monitored to ensure that it meets the requirements of Section 508, along with the best practices outlined by the W3C’s (World Wide Web Consortium’s) Web Accessibility Initiative, specifically WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) Level A Compliance. We are diligently working to reach and maintain a higher standard of accessibility, which is Level AA Compliance of W3C’s WCAG standards. Because technology changes rapidly, this is an ongoing process.

If you experience any accessibility issues in relation to this website, please contact us. Let us know which page or item you need help with and we will provide a solution that works for you within a reasonable period of time. Questions, comments or complaints about the accessibility of our website, videos or documents can be sent to Jennifer Hutchinson at jen@disabilitynetwork.net.
