A Note From Matt

Standard

The first one hundred days of operation of DIG has left us breathless with so much to do, and so much that has been accomplished.

Our litigation team has handled, or is handling 58 matters, and over 65 people have called DIG’s intake line for litigation assistance. The matters that we are currently working on range from a fair housing case with a man with Down Syndrome who the housing provider attempted to evict, to a person who is HIV positive being denied an operation.   The highest proportion of cases accepted are cases involving the deaf, with 22 cases, followed by eight cases involving issues relating to assistance animals.  The types of clients we represent from persons with visual impairments, pregnancy, mobility impairments, MS, learning disabilities, PTSD, other mental disabilities, and many, many others.  From the matters that we are handling, we currently have 19 cases pending in court, 11 cases in administrative proceedings, ten cases in pre-suit status, and nine cases on appeal.  We have also settled six matters in the past three months.

Our efforts at education and outreach have also been phenomenal.  We won the first “Leave a Legacy, Philanthropy Miami Shark Tank” competition for our joint effort with the Center for Autism and Related Disabilities and the Coral Gables Police Department for our “Wallet Cards- Let’s Save A Life” project, you can read more about this project in the story below.

Our organization has had a running start, but this is only the first hundred feet of a marathon.  We have only started, and we have a long ways to go.  We invite everyone to take this journey with us.
