The Center for Independence of the Disabled, New York's (CIDNY) goal is to ensure full integration, independence and equal opportunity for all people with disabilities by removing barriers to the social, economic, cultural, and civic life of the community. 

CONSUMER WALK-IN HOURS

Manhattan office: Every Monday and Tuesday from 10:00 am-1:30 pm and on Thursday from 10:00 am-3:00 pm. 

Queens office: Every Monday from 10:00 am-3:00 pm

Walk-in days are on a first come, first served basis. If you're already working with a CIDNY counselor, we encourage you to make an appointment with your counselor, since you are not guaranteed being able to see a specific counselor during walk-in hours.

FILING AN ADA COMPLAINT

If you believe you've been discriminated against as a person with a disability, the Department of Justice has a new way for you to file a complaint. This online form is here: http://www.ada.gov/complaint. As of May 15, 2015, the Department will no longer accept email complaints. You can still file a complaint by U. S. mail. Contact the Department's ADA Information Line at 1-800-514-0301 (V) or 1-800-514-0383 (TTY) to receive a paper complaint form by mail.
