The ADA Celebration is moving location due to weather! The new location will be our Special Olympics Inclusion Center: 160 6th st. SW, Grand Rapids 49548. We will set up the event in our large gymnasium. 4pm-7pm.
This ADA Celebration will have fun and entertainment for the entire family! We welcome you to join us in celebration with the Creative Cube, food, music, educational activities, and tables with information on services that are available to those who have a disability.
*** We have arranged for transportation services. The Rapid does not stop at Millennium park. Contact Ashley: [email protected] or (616) 323-2212 to make arrangements. ***
Our community benefits by becoming more accessible, inclusive, and welcoming for all. We have become recognized locally and across the state, specifically for our transit advocacy, education, technical assistance on accessibility, and Universal Design through our Absolutely Accessible Kent program.
Our community has an increased awareness of the need for accessibility and welcoming of persons with disabilities. This awareness stems from the changing perceptions of ability experienced by more active seniors as they age, the increased presence of persons with disabilities participating in the community, and the increased awareness of the barriers that prevent accessibility.
We believe it is imperative to continue community education and technical assistance to increase the inclusiveness and accessibility of our built environment and create new best practices that incorporate Universal Design concepts. Our ultimate vision is access for all, regardless of ability.
