Disability Access Notice 

All of the programs, services and benefits at Jeremiah’s Inn are available on an equal basis to eligible persons with disabilities.

In the event that you have a disability that you would like us to accommodate, it is important for you to let us know as soon as possible.

For clients in the residential program, we encourage you to indicate whether you have a disability for which you are requesting an accommodation on the Residential Program Application form.  Also, we encourage you to discuss your request for an accommodation at your interview for placement in the Residential Program.  Jeremiah’s Inn will attempt to provide you a reasonable accommodation.

For clients using the food pantry, we encourage you to let the Nutrition Center Coordinator know of any disability (such as a food allergy) you have and how best to accommodate it.  Depending on the circumstances, we may not be able to accommodate your need for the requested accommodation.

If you choose not to disclose whether you have a disability as part of the intake and interview process, and become a resident at Jeremiah’s Inn, and then disclose that you have a disability, we will do our best to provide a reasonable accommodation to you.  However, there may be some accommodations we may not be able to provide or that are not reasonable.
