ABOUT THE COMMISSION ON DISABILITIES

Members of the Commission on Disabilities are appointed by the Board of Supervisors and represent each District for a nonconsecutive two year term. Our mission is to advise the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on a range of issues affecting the lives of people with disabilities and of actions they can take to achieve a barrier free County where people with disabilities have equal access to programs and services. Our Commission and Committees focus on issues of health, employment, education, transportation, access, and recreation. We also monitor the quality of municipal services, evaluate policy, and recommend improvements to existing laws.

We are especially proud of our Scholarship Programs that disperses financial scholarships to students with disabilities who are pursuing a higher education. Donations to the Bernard Siegel / Bill Tainter, Ernest T. Hamilton, Jr., Veteran and Ruben Anthony Rios, Art Scholarship Programs are tax deductible. We encourage your participation.

The Commission on Disabilities meets every third Wednesday of the month at 1:00 p.m. Meetings are held in room 374-A of the Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration at 500 West Temple Street in Downtown Los Angeles, California 90012. The public is welcome to attend.
