The Fishers Advisory Committee on Disability (FACD) was established in 2017 to be the community voice representing over 90,000 citizens of and for disability awareness in the City of Fishers and Hamilton County.
The committee’s mission is to bring the community together—businesses, organizations, residents with disabilities, and various stakeholders to establish priorities and strategies to address the various challenges and needs facing the disability community.
Their goal is to promote inclusion and accessibility and to strive to make Fishers a community where people with physical and intellectual disabilities can live life without limits.
The committee is made of active citizens that are engaged in their community, ask the tough questions, and get results when it comes to disability advocacy. The committee meets quarterly and provides information regarding disabilities to the community of Fishers through presentations and speakers.
In 2017, the Fishers Advisory Committee on Disability received the Champions of Inclusion Award from the Indiana Governor's Council for People with Disabilities in recognition of their efforts. Learn more.
