St. Louis (April 4, 2022) Independence Center is in the process of creating a new ADA ramp to make its building more accessible to those with physical disabilities. This project is a direct result of the work happening from Independence Center’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) committee.
“We want everyone who comes to our facilities to feel a sense of belonging,” said Trish Holmes, Executive Director of Independence Center. “Our Clubhouse model, which promotes those with mental illness to feel needed, wanted and accepted, should carry over to all who enter our building. We want everyone to feel welcome, regardless of if you are walking, rolling or strolling in the building.”
