We are Access Living

Access Living is a center of service, advocacy, and social change for people with disabilities led and run by people with disabilities.

We ignite disability power and pride, provide critical services, and break down systemic barriers to create a stronger, more inclusive society.

We envision a world free from barriers and discrimination – where disability is a respected and natural part of the human experience and people with disabilities are included and valued.
