Almost that time of year…Taxes!

Doing your taxes is often daunting for most people. For many people with disabilities, it can be overwhelming. Click here for a link to help with Tax Credits and Deductions for People with Disabilities.

If you’re looking for in-person assistance, the Senior Resource Center of Douglas County will be offering help to people starting on February 1. Due to the renovation of the current building, the tax assistance will be located at the Central United Methodist Church at 1501 Massachusetts St. Check out the Senior Resource Center’s webpage for more info by clicking this link.

 

15th Annual Disability Mentoring Day

Disability Mentoring Day (DMD) is a nation-wide event that promotes career development and mentoring for youth with disabilities through hands-on career exploration, job shadowing and mentoring.  It illustrates the importance of encouraging young people with disabilities to develop skills necessary for future employment.

This year we had 48 youth participate from Baldwin City High School, Lawrence Free State High School, Lawrence High School, and Wellsville High School.
