disAbility Connections has been an integral part of Jackson since 1925 and now also serves Hillsdale and Lenawee Counties. We are a unique non-profit agency that assists people with disabilities to overcome barriers and become full participants in our community.
In 2005 we became a Center for Independent Living, a network ofmore than 600 Centers around the country and throughout theworld. We are a recognized leader in improving the way people with disabilities live their lives.
Photos are from the June 3, 2016 disAbility Connections 90th Anniversary Celebration. Art 634 was the perfect venue for our "Roaring 20's" theme. Food, fun and music by Blessing Offor made for a good time for all who attended. To see more pictures or to comment on the party visit our face book page.
