Welcome to Community Access Center

Welcome to Community Access Center (CAC) website, an independent living center.
Community Access Center has been providing services to people with disabilities in Riverside County since 1995.

Our Mission

 The mission of Community Access Center is to empower persons with disabilities to control their own lives, create an accessible community and advocate to achieve complete social, economic, and political integration.

We implement this vision by providing information, supportive services and independent living skills training

The primary purpose of Community Access Center is to empower consumers with disabilities by providing services and information to support them in making choices that will positively affect their independence

CAC will accomplish this through a social-rehabilitation model.  The Center serves all people with physical and mental disabilities regardless of race, ancestry, religion, age, martial status, sexual preference, gender, and/or income.

Walk-ins are always welcome at Community Access Center.  However, we can serve you better if you have an appointment.  We provide the  following Core Services:  Systems Advocacy, Individual Advocacy / Peer Counseling, Assistive Technology, Senior Low Vision Programs, IDEA Advocacy, ADA Compliance Reviews, and Disaster Planning.  For more information on each Core Service, click on the service's link or go to the CAC services page.
