National foundations will double your contribution to support high quality local news in Evansville, but only until Dec. 31st! Please make a contribution today to keep local news strong in our community.

It’s called FINDER, and the local Advisory Board on Disability Services says it’s designed to collect and organize disability-related services, programs, equipment, and advocacy contacts across the state.

Indiana Disability Resource FINDER currently contains nearly 3,000 service providers with the potential to include thousands more.

In a release, the board says FINDER supports the right for people of all abilities to freely choose how they wish to live their lives to the fullest.

It does not rate or endorse programs, services, or organizations. It’s up to the individual to decide if a resource fits their unique needs.

Over the next few weeks and months, the local Advisory Board on Disability Services will preview FINDER through presentations and online webinars with local service providers, medical facilities, educational institutions, media, and others.
