Americans with Disabilities Act

Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits all state and local governmental agencies from discriminating against persons with disabilities and from excluding participation in, or denying benefits of programs, services or activities to, persons with disabilities.

To ensure that people with disabilities can fully participate in and benefit from the Public Services offered by the County of Orange, the Board of Supervisors adopted a policy prohibiting discrimination against persons with disabilities in June of 1994.

The Board of Supervisors established a County ADA Title II Coordinator who is located within the CEO/Office of Risk Management and will have corporate oversight of County Departments and Agencies compliance with ADA II:

April Chase 
Assistant County Safety Manager
County ADA Title II Coordinator
600 W. Santa Ana Blvd.
Suite 104
Santa Ana, Ca 92701

In addition, an ADA II Coordinator has been established for each county department and agency. Complaints, concerns or recommendations regarding public access to any of the county programs, services and activities should initially be reported to that department or agency ADA II Coordinator who can immediately begin to resolve the matter. For a list of these department and agency coordinators, view Title II Agency Coordinators.
