Ride-Hailing and Mobility Workshop and Forum
The City of Bloomington’s Council for Community Accessibility was funded to host an all-day training on ride-hailing services as a possible supplement to paratransit.
The project had two components:
- An informational workshop for policy makers, transportation planners, and disability organizations about incorporating ride hailing services (Uber and Lyft) and other mobility options into public transit, followed by
- An “how-to” workshop for people with disabilities and older adults.
The featured speaker for both events was Judy Shanley from the National Center for Mobility Management.
Matching an Untapped Workforce: Available Careers in Health Care
The Hamilton Center, a community behavioral health center serving the Terre Haute area, collaborated with Indiana State University, Vigo County School Corporation, and others to host an all-day workshop at Union Hospital. The invited participants, youth with disabilities, were introduced to the various career opportunities in the health care sector in Vigo County. The workshop included a speaker on the employment provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act and workplace accommodations.
