Life Without Limits Month

 

Life Without Limits is a nationwide tagline created by United Cerebral Palsy. “Life Without Limits” aims to develop a more effective and thorough model of delivering services to children and adults with disabilities. The first step is to raise awareness of the need for continued support services for individuals with disabilities. By researching current improvements in technology and advocating the integration of new and advanced services, we can further improve the daily lives of those with disabilities.

Life Without Limits community sessions have been taking place around the country and in SLO County to brainstorm ways to enhance and improve individualized services and redevelop funding streams for children and adults with disabilities living in the Central Coast area.

In Life Without Limits Month, UCP of San Luis Obispo has paired with San Luis Obispo Access for All (AFA) to create a series of events that will serve not only adults and children with disabilities, but also the seniors, veterans, families, caregivers and healthcare professionals who are interested in improving the quality of life for people with all types of disabilities. Life Without Limits Month features the Farmers Market Disability Awareness Night and Paul Wolff Accessibility Advocacy Awards (PWAAAs).

The Farmers Market Night allows networking between San Luis Obispo County based service providers who provide services for people with disabilities, seniors, veterans, seniors and healthcare professionals, and takes place during the most popular recurring event in San Luis Obispo County, the Thursday evening Farmers Market Night in downtown San Luis Obispo. Vendors have the opportunity to interface with a broad audience and show the general public new and excited technologies and services.

The events culminate with the Paul Wolff Accessibility Advocacy Awards (PWAAAs) where we host a gathering of people to celebrate those who have positively affected the lives of people with disabilities. The PWAAA recognizes individuals, organizations and businesses who have contributed their time, efforts and energy towards creating a barrier-free community for all people with disabilities. The PWAAA 2013 will take place on Friday, May 2nd at the Pavilion on the Lake in Atascadero, CA. For more information, please contact Janice Fong-Wolf by email: jwolf@sloccf.org.
