All Access


All Access Warren Logo







ALL ACCESS WARREN is an initiative launched by the City of Warren and its Disability Commission to promote awareness about the benefits of accessibility for persons with disabilities.

The goal of ALL ACCESS WARREN is to collaborate with Warren-based businesses, non-profit organizations, and other establishments in Warren who share a common goal: ensuring that persons with disabilities have equal access when working, visiting, or frequenting sites in our city.


A major component of ALL ACCESS WARREN involves conducting accessibility surveys of businesses throughout the city. These surveys will be done by trained volunteers. Surveys take less than half-hour to complete. If a business is found to be at least 75% accessible, it will receive a window cling to be displayed at the site. The business will also receive special recognition by the City of Warren and be posted on the All Access Warren website, This posting includes a link to the business’s website and location.

This initiative will be marketed via our own Warren TV and other local media outlets.

We will also work with organizations which provide services to persons with disabilities to help Disability Commission to network with other service providers to ensure maximum public notification of the goals of ALL ACCESS WARREN.

Visit to see businesses that have been found accessible and posted to
the website.

Incentives for participation in the All Access Warren initiative include:

More business;

Recognition on the All Access Warren website;

A link to business/entity/organization’s website and location, and

A window “cling” to display at the site, either within the site or on the site’s window acknowledging it as accessible to persons with disabilities.
