Disability and Accommodation Information
Disability outreach and inclusion is vital to the success of national and community service initiatives. National service is for everyone because everyone has something of value to offer. To support the inclusion of people with disabilities in service, resources are available to assist programs with training and technical assistance needs related to various topics including: outreach, recruitment, retention, disclosure, legal responsibilities, and accessibility.
For more information about supporting members with disabilities, contact your program officer or Serve Washington - 360-902-0656.
