Assistance Program

Get Financial and Legal Assistance

The ADA removes barriers and empowers people. But its regulations can only be enforced if violations are brought to the enforcement department’s attention.

Taking action sometimes requires money and legal representation. However, many with disabilities don’t have those resources.

If lack of money or legal representation prevents you from acting on discrimination or rights violations, AccessAmerica can provide free financial assistance and help arrange competent legal representation. Depending on the situation and need, we can assemble a team of local advocates who focus on protecting your rights, improving your life and quickly getting you the resources you need.

We specialize in helping with:

  • Fair housing violations
  • Mobility issues in public building and facilities
  • Disability rights and discrimination
  • Insuring access to technology and other electronic services

To request assistance, all you have to do is call our toll-free hotline or fill out our online form. If you have them, it is helpful to include photos along with any specific details that will help our team understand the situation.

Submit your request today.

Our volunteers review each and every request and will respond to you within 7 days.

Creating Global Awareness

Change only occurs through awareness. Unless you or someone close to you lives with a disability, it’s easy to take mobility and access for granted. By creating global awareness, everyone can become an advocate for improving quality of life for all.
