Last month, the CIL FAAST (Florida Alliance for Assistive Services and Technology) Program attended the Oak Run Health Fair at the Palm Grove Club in Ocala. FAAST is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life for Floridians with disabilities by increasing access to assistive technology through empowerment and collaboration.
CIL staff members Claudia Avendano, Assistive Technologies Specialist, and Brandon Palermo, Consumer Specialist, met with several Marion County community members throughout the day, and discussed the variety of assistive technology equipment we have in stock at the CIL!
Special thanks to Claudia and Brandon for continuing to attend these community events and spreading the word about FAAST services and the AT that is available to individuals with disabilities! If you, or anyone you know, needs AT equipment to live a more independent life, please be sure to contact Claudia Avendano at firstname.lastname@example.org or 352-378-7474.
