Let’s Celebrate the ADA Act’s 23rd Anniversary

Join us in celebrating the 23rd Anniversary of the ADA Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has helped mold our society into a discrimination free and disability friendly environment where everyone has the opportunity to live, and to live out their dreams to their full potential.

Living with a disability does not mean that you are living with a limit. Thanks to the ADA act, there is no excuse for saying “I can’t.” It encourages change and accommodation and prohibits discrimination to promote equal rights in all aspects of living.

Whether someone living with a disability desires to live independently, travel independently, attain a high level of education, or even attain the job of their dreams, the ADA act makes it possible for each and every person to reach their goal.

Here at Helen Keller Services for the Blind, we are dedicated to helping individuals with disabilities live limit free lives.. We celebrate the existence of the ADA act daily and welcome you to join us in celebration as it has reached its 23rd year of existence
