Activities

The Commission on Disabilities' objective is to be the eyes, ears, voice, and conscience in insuring equal access to persons with disabilities of Santa Cruz County. We will advise the Board of Supervisors and serve persons with disabilities in our community in the following ways:

  • Provide an accessible, inclusive, and appropriate place for persons with disabilities to express community concerns.
  • Identify and address visible and invisible barriers preventing children and adults with disabilities from exercising their rights to live a full and productive life
  • Educate and promote awareness on disability issues and rights
  • Provide referrals and initiate collaborations, bringing together needs and resources to inspire community action
  • Take an active role in advancing Local, State, and Federal Legislation that insures and maintains equity and access for all people with disabilities.
