Housing

Lack of accessible, affordable housing is one of the biggest obstacles to living independently in their communities for people with disabilities of all ages. While the Arizona Statewide Independent Living Council does not find you a place to live, we hope this information will be helpful.

Transportation

Transportation is essential to so many aspects of Independent Living. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 helps protect the civil rights of individuals with disabilities, including the right to accessible and equal access to transportation.

Education

Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act was the first disability civil rights law to be enacted in the United States. It prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in programs that receive federal financial assistance, and set the stage for enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Section 504 works together with the ADA and IDEA to protect children and adults with disabilities from exclusion, and unequal treatment in schools, jobs and the community.

Employment

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires any employer with 15 or more employees to provide reasonable accommodation for individuals with disabilities, unless doing so would cause undue hardship. A reasonable accommodation is any change in the work environment that enables a person with a disability to enjoy equal employment opportunities.

Social Security

Have you recently become disabled and are no longer able to work? Disability benefits through the Social Security Administration (SSA) can be the additional financial assistance you need in order to get by when your health prevents you from working.
