We All Have A Story

What is the Americans with Disabilities Act?

On July 26, 1990, President George Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act into law to ensure the civil rights of people with disabilities. This legislation established a clear and comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities.

The purpose of the Americans with Disabilities Act is to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. At Disability Network, we are helping people with disabilities live fully–engaged and self–directed lives in inclusive communities. We warmly welcome you to read the shared stories from people we have worked with to help them reach their independent living goals.

We cannot do this important work without you. Every gift of donated funds makes a huge difference in the lives of the people we serve. Please consider a donation to Disability Network that enables people with disabilities to live fully–engaged lives.
