After 17 years as an architect designing ADA-compliant
buildings, Hank Falstad started the program ACCESS Watchdogs in
Wheelchairs, allowing people with disabilities to report on buildings
in the lodging industry that failed to meet ADA standards. In 2012,
Watchdogs in Wheelchairs evolved into Access Advocates. Through Access
Advocates, people with disabilities can make complaints about specific
buildings, and Access Advocates audits the building and takes legal
action on behalf of the individual who reported the building. The work
of Access Advocates is improving accessibility across the country, one
building at a time.
How SCORE helped: SCORE
mentors helped Falstad develop the basic structure for his business,
preparing him to rebrand as Access Advocates. Mentor Bob Cushman helped
Falstad with marketing and partnering with law firms and lawyers.
In 2018, Access Advocates worked on over 150 cases.
Falstad's goal is to work up to 1,000 cases per year.

Goodwill of Central Illinois will hold the 5th Annual Recycle Your Style Contest. High school students within Goodwill’s territory are encouraged to donate their used clothing. The high school that donates the most pounds of clothing will win a SMART Board donated by Bradfield’s Computer Supply. The contest runs from October 1st through October 31st. “This has been a very successful campaign for us,” said Bob Parkhurst, Goodwill Vice President. “We are grateful for Bradfield’s Computer Supply’s donation of a SMART Board each year. That prize really heats up the competition among the high schools.” Donations of items other than clothing are encouraged, but only clothing will count toward the contest. Only high schools are eligible, but others can participate including teachers, family and school supporters. Donors need to tell the Goodwill donation attendant which high school they are supporting for their donation to be counted. Donations can be made at any of Goodwill’s nine stores o

The Pekin Women's Leadership Network empowers women to become effective leaders by providing essential skills and strategies for professional and personal growth. A variety of carefully tailored programs are designed to support women in all phases of their careers. Why is this program needed? Although women have made great strides in achieving equality, a leadership gap continues. In 2013, 20 women serve in the Senate, and only 78 women serve in the House of Representative. Overall, women hold 98, or 18.3% of the 525 seats in the 113th U.S congress. Locally, the statistics are even worse, with only 1 woman serving on the Pekin City Council. The business world does not fare much better, with only 22 women CEO's in the Fortune 500. Our focus is on helping young women develop the skills and abilities necessary to succeed and flourish in their chosen career paths. Sessions scheduled for the 2013-2014 series include: November 1st - Women in Politics - Rep. Cheri Busto
