Galvanized by the inspirational strength of the late Christie Gutierrez, Hub City Access began as a local initiative comprised of community advocates, health care providers and individuals with disabilities. HCA endeavors to make our community accessible to ALL its residents and visitors and strives to promote awareness among public and private entities in recognizing that people with disabilities (through full inclusion), can live more independently, enjoy the freedom of choice, pursue meaningful/productive lives, and contribute to and experience the economic benefits of an engaged community.

The Annual Focus on Access Gala is our way of celebrating the barriers we have overcome as a community and by honoring businesses and individuals that embrace HCA’s mission. During the Gala, HCA also presents a $5,000 contribution towards a community initiative that advances the spirit of independence, disability empowerment and full inclusion.
