How Can accessABILITY Help?

accessABILITY advocates on behalf of people with disabilities to exercise their rights to establish and maintain control over their lives. We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting people with disabilities in their own personal journey to independence. Direct services are provided FREE of charge to people with all types of disabilities regardless of age.


What We Do

Serving Indianapolis and the surrounding counties, we provide individual consumers, governmental agencies, corporations, and other nonprofits with the tools necessary to ensure the acceptance, respect, and inclusion of everyone. Despite being called a "Center," we work primarily with people in their own homes and communities to help them achieve the level of independence and community access that they want.

Building Bridges, Breaking Barriers.

As a disability led-organization, we know that no two journeys are ever the same. Our peer support model means that we employ people with disabilities to share their experiences and expertise to help others in their journey to independence.
