IMAGE DISABILITY ALLY INITIATIVE

DISABILITY ALLY INITIATIVE

The Disability Ally Initiative is an interactive training providing insight and knowledge of disability culture. The overall goal of the initiative is to get businesses, agencies, and people that work with people to better work with and support people with disabilities. The initiative is an opportunity for community members to reject negative perceptions and instead build bridges to get to connect with people with disabilities. We would like to invite you to encourage your business, agency, family, school, health care provider, and other community-based entities to join this initiative, and we would be happy to provide you with the necessary tools to become a Disability Ally.

Note: The Disability Ally Initiative is currently sponsored by the Richmond County Savings Foundation and Staten Island Performing Provider Systems. We are always looking for donation and grant opportunities to continue to support the work being done.
