Ed Roberts Day
January 23rd, 2021
Ed Roberts was both an advocate and an activist. He was a leader in the civil rights movement and championed the rights of people with disabilities. He was the founder of the first Center for Independent Living and the World Institute on Disability. He is often thought of as the father of the Independent Living Movement. Ed advocated for his right to attend the University of Berkley, and participated in the 504 sit-in held in San Francisco. He was known for a lot of things but most importantly he believed in empowering others to become advocates and activists.

Brand New Year, Brand New Blog
January 20th, 2021
It’s a new year and we’re looking forward to the road ahead. The challenges of Covid-19 are still here, but hope is on the horizon. We’ve received a letter that the California Department of Public Health has expanded the phases of the COVID-19 vaccine allocation. All persons 65 years of age and older within the general population will be eligible for the Phase 1A vaccine rollout.
San Bernardino county residents age 65 and older can register online at the County’s COVID-19 Response website at: https://sbcovid19.com/vaccine/locations/
Vaccination sites are located throughout the County at various Public Health locations, hospitals, and pharmacies. Check the above link for the location nearest you. You can call the San Bernardino County COVID-19 hotline at (909) 387-3911 from 9:00 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday.
In light of this news, we see that our fight against Covid-19 will take a turn for the better as we gear up to turn the tides in our favor. Just as before, we are here to help you and if you need any help with masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer then we have you covered. Call our offices to learn more about how we can help you stay protected from Covid-19. If you are a person with a disability and you need help with either the website, transportation, or anything related to the vaccine, let us know. We may not have all the answers, but we will bring these issues to the county and get answers.
