COVID-19 Resources for the Disability Community

In light of developments in the outbreak of COVID-19 across the country, Access Living will continue to support our community in a multitude of ways, including creating and maintaining a resource list for the disability community.

Resource List

We are Access Living…

Access Living is a center of service, advocacy, and social change for people with disabilities led and run by people with disabilities.

We ignite disability power and pride, provide critical services, and break down systemic barriers to create a stronger, more inclusive society.

We envision a world free from barriers and discrimination – where disability is a respected and natural part of the human experience and people with disabilities are included and valued.
