Southern Tier Independence Center Celebrates 30 Years

Kathy Whyte/ WNBF News

Southern Tier Independence Center Executive Director, Maria Dibble is the guest on the December 14th edition of the local public affairs program, Southern Tier Close Up as STIC marks its 30th anniversary advocating for the disabled in the region.

Dibble says a lot has changed since the Binghamton agency came into existence in 1983 ranging from municipalities simply adding more sidewalk curb cuts to accommodate wheelchairs to the passage of the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act.

Dibble says STIC still has a way to go yet in changing public mindset about people with physical and other challenges and in continuing to develop ways to make entire communities open and available  for everyone.

A big step forward in opening the world to the disabled, according to Dibble, has been the development of technology, especially the computer.

For more information on the Southern Tier Independence Center programs and services, call (607) 724-2111 or go online at www.stic-cil.org.

Southern Tier Close Up is heard Saturday afternoons at 12:10 on News Radio 1290 WNBF.
