Easter Seals West Alabama (ESWA) and the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services (ADRS) recently hosted a ribbon-cutting celebration for their new state-of-the-art facility.
The new building – located at 1400 James I. Harrison Jr. Parkway Drive East – features 56,000 square feet of office space and houses all four major ADRS programs – Alabama’s Early Intervention System, Children’s Rehabilitation Service, Vocational Rehabilitation Service, and State of Alabama Independent Living – under one roof, in addition to ESWA.
ADRS joins ESWA in a unique public-private partnership to increase current services to individuals of all ages and disabilities, expand workforce development efforts in the region, and create new opportunities for employment for persons with disabilities.
