Community Development and Systemic Change
While Community Service Coordinators (CSC)'s prepare clients to return to the community, Community Development Coordinators (CDCs) prepare the community for the client. Accessible housing, accessible communities, and opportunities for full involvement are critical to individuals’ well-being upon returning home. CDCs perform accessibility audits on public spaces and buildings, and work to create positive relationships with community leaders. Their work raises awareness of the needs of people with disabilities, encourages changed attitudes, and offers tangible solutions to accessibility challenges.
