Community Disability Resource Guide Featured

Written by 

tricountyindependentlivingDisabilities can be temporary or permanent; they can happen instantly or gradually. There are a variety of services and programs available for persons with disabilities, and a new Community Disability Resource Guide has been developed by Tri-County independent Living with up to date contact information.

"Our staff developed this booklet partially based on information and questions we receive from people who call our office," Tri-County Independent Living Executive Director Chris Jones said. "Now the contact information to get answers to many disability-related questions can be found in one place," she added, referring to the new Community Disability Resource Guide.
The 12-page Guide provides contact information for a variety of disability-related services and programs, including sections about caregivers, children with disabilities, educational opportunities, equipment to help with mobility, legal services, medical care, service/companion animals, transportation, and veterans services. It is written in 14-point font making it accessible for the vision-impaired.

"The alphabetical guide to services, programs, and resources is designed to assist persons who have disability-related questions about what is available," Jones said. These questions may come from the person with a disability, a caregiver, family member, or friend.

Hard copies of the Community Disability Resource Guide are available at the Tri-County Independent Living office, 2822 Harris Street in Eureka. The Guide can also be downloaded in PDF format from the Tri-County Independent Living website www.tilinet.org. Click the information tab on the home page, then look under the download section on the right hand side of the page.
