ACDL to Continue Providing Services to the Disability Community during COVID-19 Crisis

ACDL News, Disability Law, Press Releases No comments

The Arizona Center for Disability Law (ACDL) will continue to serve the disability community during this COVID-19 crisis.

However, both the Tucson and Phoenix offices will be closed to the public and to walk-ins for the safety of our staff, their families and the community we serve. Our lobbies will be closed through the end of March.

ACDL will continue to provide services to current clients and reviewing new requests for services via alternate means.  All trainings, public outreach events and travel have been postponed.

We are committed during this time to continuing our services to protect and advocate for people with disabilities. If you have been denied access to necessary services due to COVID-19 or feel that your legal rights have been violated, please contact us at 1-800-927-2260.

Through this unprecedented time:

  1. Staff will work from home as much as possible. Our Management Team is providing support and resources to allow staff to continue to do their work and offer services to our clients and the community.
  2. ACDL office and staff phone lines will remain open during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.).
  3. ACDL intake phone lines (1-800-927-2260) remain open 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
  4. Intakes may also be submitted online at https://www.azdisabilitylaw.org/getting-help/#online-intake-form

On the ACDL website, there is a special page concerning COVID-19 with links to information on prevention, symptoms, and more.

There is also guidance on Special Education services and how students with disabilities will receive special education services during this time.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for any updates on the rapidly evolving situation regarding COVID-19 and provide regular updates to our community on any changes concerning this situation.
