Abilities Alliance is a coalition of disability service organizations that strive to provide the most effective services for people of ALL ABILITIES in the Livingston County community.
People with disabilities have abilities and talents like everyone else. The Abilities Alliance aims to increase understanding, reduce stigma, and provide opportunities for people of all abilities. We provide collaborative opportunities for youth and adults and address the many challenges that may exist in our community.
Our primary goal is to ensure individuals are first seen with abilities and are given similar opportunities to be active in Livingston County. There are many great things happening in our community already, but this workgroup seeks to organize more opportunities in areas like housing, transportation, employment, recreational, family support, and fun.
To ensure individuals are first seen with abilities and are given similar opportunities to be active in our community.
- Identify gaps and needs that interfere with people with disabilities accessing and being included in our community and increasing community recognition of gaps and needs.
- Educate the community, through providing/sharing information about opportunities/events that mindfully include all.
- Recognize community partners who demonstrate the value of people of all abilities.
- Maintain a robust membership that represents the diversity of our community.
