Continuing to serve the disability community through COVID-19

Disability Rights Nebraska will continue to serve the disability community during this COVID-19 crisis. Both the Lincoln and Scottsbluff offices will be closed to the public and to walk-ins for two weeks, starting Monday, March 23, 2020 and will reopen Monday, April 6, 2020. We are doing this for the safety of our staff, their families and the community we serve.

We will continue to provide services to current clients and respond to new requests for services by telephone, email, internet and US Mail. All trainings, public meetings, outreach events, and travel have been suspended until further notice.

We are committed to continuing our services to protect and advocate for people with disabilities during this time. If you have been denied access to necessary services due to COVID-19 or feel that your legal rights have been violated, please contact us at 1-800-422-6691.
