Visit to Inland Northwest Lighthouse

Deb (Jenkins) Wolfer, Alisa Alonge and Dave Reynolds had a wonderful meeting this morning with about 20 employees at Inland Northwest Lighthouse for the Blind.

We explained the mission of Access 4 All Spokane and the mandate of the Spokane County Accessible Communities Advisory Committee, both of which are about increasing accessibility and disability-friendliness across our county.

They helped add new businesses to our list of places that have been endorsed for being both accessible and welcoming to customers with disabilities.

They told us they mostly appreciate restaurants that have Braille and large print menus, stores that provide shopping assistance when requested, and places that understand about service dogs.

We look forward to seeing our new friends, again, before too long.

Thanks Lighthouse!
