Assistive Technology Resource Centers of Hawaii (ATRC) is a nonprofit organization, 501(c) 3, whose mission is to link people with technology and empower individuals through its use. ATRC is also the State of Hawaii’s designated Assistive Technology Act agency since 1991. Our primary role is as a resource center to meet the need of an individual with disabilities, family members, employers, and educators. We do not sell products, however, we will gladly recommend vendors if requested.

Technology has changed for all of us and we believe persons with disabilities have benefited tremendously.  Take this opportunity to browse this website, our Facebook page and see what we currently offer and contact us at any time for service, program information, and assistance related to ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY (AT).

We look forward to meeting and assisting you in any way that makes Assistive Technology more familiar and usable for you.

Barbara Fischlowitz-Leong,
Executive Director / CEO

Advocacy action needed TODAY!
The Congressional Switchboard can help you identify your Members of Congress and will connect you directly to their office - dial it at (202) 224-3121 or (202) 224-3091 (TTY). A short script you can use is: "I am a constituent who cares deeply about issues affecting people with disabilities/seniors. If you do not already oppose the tax reform bill coming for a vote today, please do so because it has provisions that would harm services for people with disabilities. Thank you for your hard work answering the phones."

Some things to consider (thanks to ANCOR):

1. Any process that includes changes to Medicaid should be accomplished through a process that affords sufficient opportunity for legislators, advocates, and constituents to review and provide feedback on the proposal and legislative language prior to passage.

2. Individual or corporate tax cuts or expenditures must not be paid for by cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, or other mandatory or discretionary programs that promote independence, inclusion, and community living for people with disabilities.

3. Tax reform should not decrease revenue to an extent that revenue is insufficient to continue to fund the programs and services and supports for people with disabilities at current levels or above.

4. The charitable deduction should be maintained and improved for the non-profit sector which provides the majority of services and supports for people with disabilities.

5. Unrelated business income tax should be held harmless to protect the vital role of nonprofits and associations in the disability services sector.
