Adapt Of West Virginia
"ADAPT (Americans with Disabilities for Attendant Programs Today) is a national organization, founded in 1977, working for the civil rights of persons with disabilities. West Virginians with disabilities must form a group which is prepared to take the initiative and action necessary to bring to the attention of legislators, media and the general public issues of importance to persons with disabilities. We can no longer wait for the existing service system to help us achieve our goals. Only we can make it happen! Through direct activism, ADAPT has played a vital role on the national level. Examples are making transportation accessible in a number of cities across the country and the passage of a national personal assistance service program which will provide persons with disabilities with the services they need to live full productive lives in their communities."
