What's New With The Arc Fresno/Madera?

Advocacy Results in Paved Sidewalk

One of the challenges that those who use wheelchairs face is maneuvering around busy streets where there may be lots of traffic.  It is unsafe, and often times very scary.  Marty street, just south of Shaw (in Fresno) was one such location… That was until, of course, our clients submitted requests to The City of Fresno to do something about it.  The City heard the requests, and moved to action.  There is now a new paved sidewalk where individuals who use wheelchairs can safely commute without the fear of being hit by cars or maneuvering around traffic.  We are so proud of these people who advocate for themselves!
