In this post we are focusing on a few organizations helping our friends in Nashville and Chattanooga TN. If you have an organization that you would like to submit for future inclusion, tell us about what you do at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be highlighting organizations and non-profit groups helping the disabled community for each of MobilityWorks’ 12 states in future posts.
