Community based organizations who serve seniors and people with disabilities have extraordinary missions, dedicated staff, and valuable resources — but they can only provide some of the support an individual needs. For seniors and people with disabilities, navigating services and resources from different organizations across a widespread geographic area can be a challenge and often overwhelming. They often miss the opportunity to receive the full-scope of services from the resources available in their area. Creating the Inland Empire Disabilities Collaborative (IEDC) helped decrease the problem of fragmented resources. By joining forces, organizations who serve seniors and people with disabilities have developed a strong relationship with each other and the community they serve.
To promote equal opportunity, universal access, and full participation of people with disabilities in all aspects of life.
