News From DAC NW


Disability Action Center NW will be presented with the Outstanding Non-Profit for Idaho Philanthropy Day on November 9th. No part of the Idaho Panhandle is untouched by the work of Disability Action Center NW (DAC). With offices in Moscow, Lewiston, Post Falls and now Spokane, DAC serves the needs of persons with disabilities (PWD) to live fulfilling, independent lives. Equal to this mission, DAC strives to educate local leaders and the general public about the rights and requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). As such DAC is a tireless advocate for the rights and needs of these most vulnerable citizens. 

DAC has become the go-to place for information about the latest adaptive technologies for PWD. Likewise, DAC is a key resource for all things pertaining to the ADA. whether that is a governmental agency wanting to update or create anew its ADA Transition Plan, or a local business wanting to make its buildings ADA compliant. The staff of DAC has unique expertise which they share free of charge. They are truly “one-stop shopping.”

DAC was nominated by the director of a social service agency serving the needs of senior citizens and PWD in the Lewis-Clark Valley.

They turn to DAC frequently as a collaborative partner to help those most in need. DAC always has something to contribute to any challenging situation, whether it be money, equipment from its disability loan closet, or expertise. As a federally designated Center for Independent Living DAC has been especially active during this period of COVID-19, keeping its consumers safe and trouble-free. As stated before, DAC advocates for its consumers and provides consulting services (data and expertise) to many governmental units developing or updating ADA Transition Plans. Because of its reach throughout all of North Idaho, it’s receiving this award that helps Idaho rank in the top ten states for volunteerism. “It’s especially important,” said Governor Little, “during the pandemic, when we rely so heavily on dedicated members of our communities to fill so many needs.”
