Thank you for taking the time to visit this site. There is a need for people with challenges to get involved in the community and share information with others. Infobility offers a variety of options, at no charge, for veterans, professionals, and young adults to learn about disability related issues. There are no restrictions on anyone’s type of disability, age, finances, issue, or location. Inclusivity is the goal. One of the primary reasons Veterans have difficulty reintegrating once they return home is the inherent problem finding work that accommodates their specific disability issues.
Building on the work done through the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the experiences of others with disabilities, Infobility seeks to educate the Team River Runner community, local employers, and others on ADA compliance, resources, grant programs, and other important topics.
Infobility offers educational programs at no charge to provide information on common myths about hiring people with disabilities.
“Working on Wheels” -a unique program to experience a day with a physical disability.
“Vocational Venues” practice job readiness skills and get help finding a job and keeping it with some job coaching.
“Your Voice Counts” learn advocacy skills to gain confidence and how to speak up effectively at home and in the community.
“The Tenacity of Hope” A booklet on ways to manage with a sudden disability. This includes thought provoking questions, suggestions, and space for one’s thoughts.
“Disability Dialogue” A video precedes an open discussion about disabilities in the workplace, the office, and at home.
This site is part of a program called Infobility, a program with the goal of sharing information on disability issues, especially for disabled Veterans.
