Why "Anderson Center for Accessible Living"?

The Anderson Center name was announced at the Cotman Vistas Grand Opening in August, 2013, by President Steve Hansler. Below is an excerpt from Steve’s announcement:

One of the most influential people in my career was Frank Anderson. Among his many involvements, Frank was a MAHO Board member for over twenty years and twice served as Board President. He was always positive and very supportive of MAHO’s work. He was a strong voice on the Board, making sure that MAHO stayed focused on its mission. 

Frank was the most effective advocate for people with disabilities that I have ever known.  He knew everyone and quietly and persistently convinced people to do the right thing. We lost a great person when Frank died suddenly in late 2011.

As such, I am pleased to announce that the new name for MAHO’s efforts to provide education and advocacy about accessibility is the Anderson Center for Accessible Living, in honor of Frank. I hope that the work we do with the Anderson Center for Accessible Living will continue Frank’s legacy of improving the lives of people with disabilities.
