DAC Driveway Repair 3/26/21

Thanks to a Capital Improvement Grant from the Pinellas Community Foundation, Disability Achievement Center is able to make the necessary repairs to our driveway that was upheaving caused by our shade tree. The very uneven pavement became a hazard and desperately needed to be repaired without killing the tree. The paving company coordinated with an arborist by removing the asphalt, allowing for root removal and installation of a root barrier to save the tree and prevent the upheaval from happening again! Thank you @PinellasCF for funding this critical project that will improve safe ingress and egress to Disability Achievement Center!

Disability Achievement Center strives to meet the needs of the local community by adding or changing services as needs change. We expanded services to people with disabilities through partnerships with Area Agency on Aging of Pinellas/Pasco (AAAPP) and Feeding Tampa Bay. AAAPP provided hygiene kits and activity books to include in all PPE Care Kits we provide that include masks and hand sanitizer. AAAPP also supports the Diapers for Dignity incontinence supply program. Our partnership with Feeding Tampa Bay enables us to provide fresh and frozen food on a weekly basis to people with disabilities who are unable to access food. We offer contactless drive up services where staff will load your vehicle using CDC Guidelines and deliver groceries to those who are unable to pick up.

We’ve been busy. How can we help you? Call us 727-539-7550 or email: info@myDACIL.org

How Does Your Garden Grow?

With the support of Pinellas County Extension Service, our garden is reaping the benefit of a newly installed drip irrigation system and the addition of red worms that we have been dutifully feeding for 2 years! Look at the beautiful purple tomatoes, healthy green onions, and squash!

Disability Achievement Center To Offer COVID Vaccines for All with a Disability

Florida Centers for Independent Living (CIL) have partnered with Florida Department of Health (FLDOH) to offer COVID-19 vaccines to any person with a disability.  Disability Achievement Center is the CIL that serves Pinellas and Pasco Counties.  We are located at 12552 Belcher Rd S, Largo, FL  33773.

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is available to anyone with a disability and we will provide free transportation within Pinellas County (through PSTA) if needed. We invite you to take advantage of this unique opportunity.  You can be placed on our registration list by filling out the CIL form (below) and returning it to us either via fax (727) 539-7588 or by email: jodya@mydacil.org.

A physician completed “COVID-19 Determination of Extreme Vulnerability” is necessary for anyone with a disability under age 60.  The form is below.  Disability Achievement Center’s fax number is 727-539-7588 if the physician desires to fax the completed form directly to us prior to vaccine administration. 

Scheduling will occur based on interest and the sooner we have sufficient requests, the quicker we will begin this effort.  Please reach out directly to Jody Armstrong at 727-539-7550 x238 with any questions.
