Amy Auerbach, founder and project manager of Northern Nevada Disability Access, was inspired to create a website connecting disabled, seniors, and veterans to easily find services in Northern Nevada communities. Amy’s inspiration of developing this project was from her intellectually challenged son. Amy’s son wanted a resource directory to encourage the Northern Nevada communities to connect to service providers in a safe and resourceful environment.
In July 2010, NNVDA launched the Northern Nevada Disability Access website.
Amy spent countess hours gathering information on resources, created a website, and ongoing networking with service providers in Northern Nevada.
In spring 2016, Amy created a videocast program on YouTube called Treasured Moments with NNVDA. This program enhanced the resources on a video platform enabling those visitors to learn about the service providers. We interviewed Alzheimer’s Association to Yoga for the Special Child. This program is still on-going and improving the quality of the videos is being effected. NNVDA is working to improve the quality. Please be patient with us.
