People of all ages, with various disabilities or friends and family with disabilities within Champaign, Douglas, Edgar, Piatt and Vermilion Counties. We also provide technical assistance and information to the community at large.
Independent Living Needs Assessment
Not sure what you need? That’s ok just ask for an Independent Living Needs Assessment. We just ask you questions about independence and from those answers, you decide what areas we can assist you in.
Disability Awareness Presentations
Staff take time to go out and tell people about disability, access and our programs so that we are reaching out to people we can assist. Have a group or a staff that would be interested? Just ask for a presentation and let us know if you have a preference for certain topics.
Access is good Business technical assistance
People with disabilities spend money, they go where they feel welcome and expected. We can show businesses how to demonstrate their desire to serve people with disabilities to the community and tap that source of income. We do not interpret the access laws, we just talk about what people with vision hearing or mobility concerns may need you to know or provide. Off site consultations are free
Access is good Business Accessibility Survey
For the business that wants to get down to business we can do a survey on site. We will take a look at your business and write up recommendations. We charge $50 per hour per number of staff.
PACE staff suggest a small donation ($2.00). PACE assists the Champaign- Urbana Mass Transit District by verifying the disability of their MTD riders. Call for an appointment and find out what you may need to bring in.
