Iteration is emblematic of startups. For example:
- From last year's pilot, we learned that parents and adults with disabilities were looking for recommended resources.
- We built the Empowered Together app and tried crowd-sourcing those recommendations.
- In our New Haven pilot, we're bringing database building in-house by listing accessible food, arts, and recreational businesses in greater New Haven.
Thankfully, we have thought partners in this endeavor at the City of New Haven and at community disability orgs. We are working with a Quinnipiac student and awaiting word on additional grant funding. We're taking the right next step in changing the social system to be accessible and inclusive of People with Disabilities.
