Disability Initiative Workgroup
 

We have a special project with Goodwill Industries in which we provide free tax preparation on-site at Goodwill Headquarters to Goodwill staff, many of whom have disabilities, and people who go to Goodwill for services and supports. The goal of this project is to strengthen our relationship with Goodwill and the people it serves in order to offer more inclusive services for people and families with disabilities. Goodwill Industries will continue to provide staff to lead outreach efforts to people with disabilities and assist the Coalition with messaging and planning. Better demographic collection tools are being researched and implemented to more accurately collect data around individuals with disabilities and/or special needs.

Our 2-1-1 system is being enhanced to use a more sophisticated screening tool to direct and assist people with special needs and/or disabilities to the most suitable VITA site for their particular requirements.
