Serving Those with Disabilities


The Tacoma Area Commission on Disabilities is an advisory group to the Tacoma City Council in policymaking, and partner with the community to bring awareness of issues that affect individuals with disabilities.

The Commission on Disabilities’ mission is to remove barriers and promote the rights of all persons with disabilities to make Tacoma accessible for everyone. They advise, educate, collaborate and serve as a resource for the City on issues and laws for persons with disabilities.

The Commission is currently doing outreach to communities in need of updating their sidewalks, parks, curbs, etc. to be ADA compliant.  If you know of an area in your community that needs to be updated, please call 3-1-1 and submit a request.  If you need to speak with someone on the Commission, you may contact Tony Caldwell at
