Community Programs

Part of DRAIL’s mission is to educate and raise the level of awareness in the community to the issues and needs of people with disability. To assist the community, we have two specific programs to help community organizations and businesses meet the needs of the person with a disability as directed by the Americans with Disabilities Act, and in developing a higher awareness of the needs and sensitivities of those with disabilities to improve working and community relationships. In addition to these two programs, we are available to consult on similar issues.
