Allied Services wheelchair basketball team, the Allied Forces, was recently given an award by the Northeastern Pennsylvania Center for Independent Living at its luncheon celebrating the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The team was chosen because their example of true independence helps keep the focus on abilities and helps break down barriers in the community.
