Commission on Disabilities

Commission on Disabilities

Members of the Commission on Disabilities are appointed by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and represent each District for a nonconsecutive two-year term. The Commission was charged by the Board to advise on a range of issues affecting the lives of people with disabilities and of actions that can be taken to achieve a barrier-free County where people with disabilities have equal access to programs and services. Our Commission and Committees focus on issues of health, employment, education, transportation, access, and recreation. We also monitor the quality of municipal services, evaluate policy, and recommend improvements to existing laws.

 

We are especially proud of our Memorial Scholarship Programs that disperse financial scholarships to students and veterans with disabilities who are pursuing a higher education. Donations to the Bernard Siegel / Bill Tainter, Ernest T. Hamilton, Jr., Veteran and Ruben Anthony Rios, Art Scholarship Programs are tax deductible. We encourage your participation.

 

Consistent with our charge, our Mission Statement is “To advocate and represent the best interest of people with disabilities, promote equal access to all County resources and services, and lead a barrier free environment to an independent community life and activities. The Commission works to promote inclusion, provides educational opportunities, and champions the needs of all.”

 

The Commission on Disabilities meets every third Wednesday of the month at 1:00 p.m. Meetings are held in room 374-A of the Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration at 500 West Temple Street in Downtown Los Angeles, California 90012. The public is welcome to attend.
