Access Living

Access Living's picture

Governed and staffed by a majority of people with disabilities, Access Living works to eliminate physical and social barriers to independence.  Since 1980, Access Living has empowered tens of thousands of people with all types of disabilities with the skills and self-confidence to pursue choices, with the knowledge to fight for their rights, and with the strength to advocate for a fully accessible society. Today, Access Living continues to work toward one Chicago – an integrated, accessible community where everyone has equal access to the cultural, educational and employment opportunities this city has to offer.
