Access is Good Business

Help us show businesses how to “invite” customers who have disabilities by being accessible.   Many years of not being able to get in businesses or being treated rudely by people who were uncomfortable not knowing how to assist them have created a need to invite customers with disabilities.   Something as simple as a sign saying “Ask for assistance we are glad to help.” is a signal a business wants to accommodate.  It can be the difference in choosing one business over another similar business.

Promote Business Accessibility through Technical Assistance
PACE offers free technical assistance to business representatives.   Volunteers with building, business expertise or experience needing the accommodations themselves are encouraged to join our team.

Promoting Business Accessibility with Access Surveys
For in-depth survey of a business PACE can visit and provide a consultation and recommend access features that will assist businesses in attracting customers with disabilities. We can evaluate your business and suggest things you can do that make using your business attractive to customers with disabilities. There is a $50.00/hr fee per consultant. Non profit fees are available. Call 217 344-5433 for more information.  PACE surveys are about good access without legal advice.   PACE staff are anxious to assist business representatives’ plan for accessibility that will open up their ability to attract customers with disabilities.
