“When we talk about what it means to be disability friendly, this is what it looks like. Organizations and businesses that create a community where everyone feels welcomed and valued. Perfection isn’t the goal -education, empowerment, and openness for guests, employees, and people and of all abilities is the core of the mission. We applaud local disability-friendly businesses and hope to build a large network of establishments that share similar values and goals,” said Mallory Crooks of The Ability Center.
