Quote: "The opening of the northern Kentucky office is an important step towards spanning services to the entire Commonwealth"

The Center for Accessible Living, a leading disability rights and resource center, will now be actively serving the northern Kentucky area with the opening of a permanent northern Kentucky office in Crestview Hills.

The Center will provide information, advocacy and resource referral in order to empower people with disabilities to live as independently as possible.

The new office is the center's third site in the state, the others being in Louisville and Murray.

Keith Hosey, Associate Director at the Center for Accessible Living stated:

"We're excited about the new office and feel it communicates clearly our mission in serving people in the community living with disabilities. This is a good opportunity to refresh the conversation about person-first language and independent living. Part of our mission is to change the perception of what living with a disability is like. We hope to provide creative and impactive messages about the culture of disabilities."

The opening of the northern Kentucky office is an important step towards spanning services to the entire Commonwealth.

Those wishing to contact the northern Kentucky office should call (859)940-3843, contact the Center on Facebook at Center For Accessible Living Northern Kentucky office or Twitter CALKY Northern KY.

The Center for Accessible Living was created in 1981 as a housing resource program which quickly expanded to a comprehensive independent living center.

The CAL operates on a cross disability basis which means that individuals will be served regardless of type of disability.
