WHO WE ARE

Our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly in the actions of our initiatives. From the moment we started our work together, we understood that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently. This is why we ultimately decided to launch the Joint Alliance of the Tampa Mayor’s Alliance for Persons with Disabilities and the Hillsborough County Alliance for Citizens with Disabilities.  We strive to make  real change in all of our pursuits.

We seek to identify and resolve issues of concern that affect our Tampa Bay citizens with disabilities, our community at-large and the many visitors to the Tampa Bay area.
