Without Judy Heumann, ADA would not exist. Regarded as “the mother” of the Disability Rights Movement, she stated, "Disability only becomes a tragedy when society fails to provide the things we need to lead our lives — job opportunities or barrier-free buildings, for example."
Some of the organizations the City supports are:
- Bridge of Promise, providing life-skills, therapeutic classes, online engagement, and community participation opportunities for individuals with disabilities,
- Community Homes, providing community-based housing, and housing education for families, and
- Kindering, supporting families of children with diverse abilities.
