Governor's Commission on Disability

Join us for service dog demonstrations live on 9/28/16 from 11AM - 1:30PM service dog

The Commission's goal is to remove the barriers which bar people with disabilities from full participation in society.


On behalf of the Governor's Commission on Disability, I welcome you to our website and hope that you find it informative as well as responsive to any questions which you may have.

The GCD is actively involved within the disability community and the plethora of arenas touching the lives of individuals with disabilities and their supporters which this document is not able to completely encapsulate. Therefore, I invite you to also follow the GCD on social media, where you will find timely updates to issues pertaining to those with a disability as well as news regarding upcoming events such as the Governor's Accessibility Awards, the annual ADA anniversary event, seminars and the like.

The Governor's Commission on Disability lives and breathes the ADA. We strive for Access for All, so that equal protection of the law is afforded to all.

Once again, thank you for visiting our website and please never hesitate to contact me if I may ever be of assistance.

With Warm Regards,


Charles J. Saia

Executive Director
