Information & Referral
Access to information and referral services is essential for people with disabilities. In addition to various types of direct services, individuals need information on options, resources, and the issues that influence their abilities to achieve independent lifestyles. As an organization and part of a statewide network, we have connections with other agencies, government programs, and non-profits that collectively have access to a vast array of resources and services. Referrals can be essential to achieving independence, most often involving a variety of agencies and community organizations. We provide up to date information and referrals on topics such as advocacy, accessibility, housing, transportation, high school transition, community transition services, and veteran services. Information and referral services are also provided to other service providers and the community at large. This assistance is instrumental in increasing public awareness of disability issues and knowledge of the service options and resources available to people with disabilities from the center and the community.
