Accessibility and Inclusion Ministry Team

We want your feedback!

The AIM (Accessibility and Inclusion Ministry) Team requests approximately eight minutes of your time to provide your opinion on accessibility at UUCC. The survey will be available online through mid-September. Also, paper copies of the survey in regular and large-print versions will be available in the Greeting Area through Sept. 10. Click the button below to take the survey.

Please help UUCC understand how it can better serve the needs of people with disabilities and diversabilities!  If you have questions, email Gretchen Maune or James Cutts.

UUCC’s AIM (Accessibility and Inclusion Ministry) Team seeks to create an inclusively designed environment, free from ableism, where all individuals feel radically welcome and are able to participate in every aspect of our church. We continually strive to make UUCC a universally designed environment for all members of our church and members of the public.

At UUCC we have made many efforts over the years to be accessible and inclusive. However, we are not yet accessible and inclusive to all people, be they adults or children, members or guests, or members of the public using our meeting spaces.

In order to tackle this issue, we have determined four focus areas:

  • Education: Creating an ableism free space (UUCC culture, member awareness, etc.)
  • Physical Accessibility: Elevator, doorway and path access widths, signage, heights, etc.
  • Neurodiversity: Sensory accessibility, UDL/diverse learning styles, etc.
  • Information Accessibility: Interpreting, recording transcription, electronic info, website, Braille, etc.

Current Projects

The first stage of our work included completing a physical accessibility survey of our facilities. Next, we will ask members to complete their own surveys, answering a series of questions, in order for the AIM Team to determine the current accessibility needs of our congregation.
