In observance of Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, Solano County Health and Social Services, in partnership with the DisABILITY Planning Group, will host a Disabilities Resource Fair from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday at the County Events Center, 601 Texas Street in Fairfield. This event is free and open to the public.
At the resource fair, the County will unveil the SolanoCares.org — Disabilities website, an online hub of resources, services, health topics and events designed specifically for Solano residents with disabilities. Like its sister site SolanoCares4Seniors.org, this one-stop resource website provides people with disabilities, their family members, caregivers, and health care professionals a means to easily look up disability-related information.
Key features of the website include a comprehensive service directory of local, state and national resources, community calendar, learning center, nationwide news stories and health library. The website aims to empower people with disabilities by providing them a streamlined platform to find resources in an easy-to-read format. SolanoCares.org is ADA-compliant and available in multiple languages.
