#GivingTuesdayNow is May 5, 2020

Yes We Are Open!

Our offices may be empty, but our staff and attorneys are busier than ever and ready to help you.    Here are just a few things we have been up to:

  • Providing legal assistance to families so that their children with disabilities can continue to learn and receive services in this new remote learning environment
  • Training parents of children with disabilities about their rights to special education and related services during remote learning
  • Monitoring conditions in NH’s institutions to ensure the most vulnerable are safe and protected during this time when their families can’t visit
  • Advocating for mental health services for people with significant disabilities who don’t have access to the internet or cell phones
  • Advocating with state officials to protect people with disabilities against discrimination in healthcare rationing decisions
  • Advocating with hospitals about their visitor policies and their need to reasonably accommodate people with disabilities who require a support person
  • Helping people with disabilities access community-based services so that they are not stuck in the hospital unnecessarily

We hope you will support this work by making a donation today, because even in a crisis, people with disabilities have the right to live, work, learn, and access their community without discrimination.
