“Title III, which this rule addresses, prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in the activities of places of public accommodation (businesses that are generally open to the public and that fall into one of 12 categories listed in the ADA, such as restaurants, movie theaters, schools, day care facilities, recreation facilities, and doctors’ offices) and requires newly constructed or altered places of public accommodation—as well as commercial facilities (privately owned, nonresidential facilities such as factories, “


So yes they’re violating the ADA. A private school is a business and a school. All activities are required to be reasonably accessible. Since diabetes and epilepsy require no accessibility provisions for the activities you’re talking about, they’re covered by default.

Words of advice, coming from a native that’s been in all kinds of neighborhoods. When outside.., Headphones off: leave them home. Phones: in pocket out of view or home Don’t walk down the street texting. Keep a 20 and an old credit card in your wallet, keep your bank card, credit card, license and the rest of your cash anywhere but in your wallet.

Think of your wallet as a decoy

timeorganization.org It’s not the ritz Carlton but they provide shelter and drug treatment in one package and it’s grant funded. They’ll come get you.

You have to be committed and there may or may not be people using but mostly not. Just keep your side of the street clean.

If you relapse and get caught be honest come clean and don’t act like an asshole and they won’t throw you out.
