Mission
The Council for Community Accessibility (CCA) is a volunteer group that promotes awareness of the challenges faced by people with disabilities, works to develop solutions to problems of accessibility in the community, and advocates for the interests of people with disabilities.
Program Description
This is an open council and any member of the public may attend and participate at CCA meetings.

The City of Bloomington offers many opportunities to get involved and help make Bloomington the most accessible community it can possibly be, such as identifying and addressing physical barriers within the community by taking part in the AccessAbility Decal Project.

CCA's Objectives:
  • Assessment: To seek information about the needs and available services for persons with disabilities.
  • Awareness: To educate all segments of the community.
  • Accessibility: To promote access to places of public accommodation, housing, programs, and services.
  • Affinity: To develop coalitions with groups that share similar interests
  • Advocacy: To promote the best interests of persons with disabilities by supporting specific, identified issues.
  • Advice: To serve as a resource to the community.
  • Action: To actively work to accomplish the objectives of the organization.
