Become a Member

ACA Members are key to our local empowerment mission well beyond the revenues of a modest annual fee:

Each member reinforces support for our mission and strengthens our ability to secure other grant funding to service our I/DD clientele and their families.

Members also make for wonderful communicators of our mission and at times are the best sources for relevant information coming into or broadcasting out from our community.


  • Building an inclusive community for all our neighbors.
  • Navigation clients through complicated support systems.
  • An education series.
  • Legislative alerts and actions.


  • The latest updates on changes in disability rights
  • Member social events & education forums
  • Members-only closed discussions

Volunteer with the ACA

Not all support need be monetary. Connect with our staff for a chance to give some time or effort in service to our mission.

We believe it will take a diverse set of skills and perspectives to accomplish our goals. Do you have a unique talent you’d like to contribute in some way?

Opportunities to help include event work, creative and administrative work, fundraising, and we are interested in growing our Board of Directors further at this time too.
