  • Artists Beyond Boundaries call for art is now open! From June 1 through August 31, Access to Independence is inviting artists with disabilities of all skill levels to submit up to two works of art for a chance to win one of thirteen $200 awards and have their artwork featured in the 2022 Artists Beyond Boundaries calendar. Learn more about the event here, and find the artist entry form here.
  • The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of Dane County is looking for RSVP Driver Escort volunteers to drive seniors to medical appointments and Vets Helping Vets volunteer drivers to drive veterans and their families to important appointments.
