OFFICE BUILDING ACCESS
Our Amesbury office has limited accessibility for people with a wheeled mobility device. It has an elevator that fits most mobility devices and strollers. There is no automatic door opener.
Please call ahead to our offices and we will accommodate your accessibility needs.
All offices in Amesbury, Newburyport and Lawrence are accessible to public transportation.
We provide reasonable accommodations to people who work, volunteer, or receive services at the Center. You can discuss with staff what you would need to be able to fully use our services or be part of the Center. Some accommodations, such as ASL and foreign language interpreting, may take some time to obtain; please contact us in advance to discuss and request.
