Throughout the Expo, our entertainment stages and outdoor demo areas feature so much variety: rock and jazz bands, classical and jazz pianists, choirs, acting troupes, soccer players, therapy horses, martial arts, dancers, drum circles, and more.
Under the leadership of Coordinators Barb Bressner and Jim Mayer, many volunteers and steering committee members make the annual event happen.
The DisABILITY Resource Expo has been occurring annually in Champaign County, Illinois, since 2007. It has grown in size over the years, to include approximately 100 exhibitors per year, representing a wide range of disability-oriented products and services. The event produces a resource directory, available at the Expo, and a cumulative, online directory, available at this website. Further, the Expo event includes fun, family-friendly educational & recreational activities, and entertainment featuring people with disabilities is provided annually as well. Funding for the Expo is provided by the Champaign County Mental Health & Developmental Disabilities Boards, as well as by many community partners/businesses.
The DisABILITY Resource Expo Mission Statement: “To provide full access to information and resources from a wide variety of agencies and organizations, to promote a better quality of life for people with disabilities in Champaign County and East Central Illinois.”
