There are over 54 million Americans with disabilities. 2015 was the ADA’s 25th Anniversary and what a long way we have come. One of the challenges we face in Shawano is transportation for people in wheelchairs. Community Alternatives is working with local resources (Menominee Transit and City Cab) until we are able to acquire vans back from Shawano County and obtain Wisconsin DOT 5310 Grant vehicle (September-October). WeÂ have joined the City/County Transportation Committee to make others aware that there is a need for expansion in this area.

Shawano and Menominee Counties in conjunction with their respective High Schools will be offering a transition fair to students that will be completing high school and looking to enter into the workforce. Numerous vendors will be on hand to talk with students about what is next and offer resources that may assist them with this transition.
Transition Fair will be held on October 8, 2015 at 9:25am at the Menominee College
