disAbility Connections is following the latest guidance by Governor Whitmer to stay at home. Our office will remain closed and we are working on a plan to begin a phased re-opening for the health of our workers and consumers. The Loan Closet and Fix-dis services are also suspended during this time and will follow the phased re-opening process. Staff continue to offer virtual services as they work from home to provide as much assistance as possible.
If you need to reach us please call our main phone line (517) 782-6054.
Please continue to check our website and Facebook for further updates regarding services and operations.
Do you live in Jackson, Lenawee, or Hillsdale County and also have a disability? If you answered yes to both parts of that question, we can use your input!! We have developed a survey about your needs during the Covid-19 pandemic.
We will use the results to better understand how people are doing and if there are areas that may have room to be improved upon.
The partnership with U of M and disAbility Connections has provided a great video of the importance of accessibility and the impact it has on people. Please watch the video and click on the link below to read the article that goes with it.

YOUR OPINION COUNTS
The Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) needs to hear directly from people who have disabilities, their family members, friends, caregivers and other stakeholders. Your participation in the process is vital and we appreciate your time and consideration in completing this survey.
The information collected will help to assess how those programs and services are meeting the needs of people who have disabilities living in Michigan. The following link will take you to the survey.
