The Ohio Chapter led by advocates Jennifer Corcoran and Kim Boulter. They were inspired to start this advocacy because of their own struggles to care for their sons while away from home.

Both advocates are mothers to sons who have a disability, and have the need for accessible changing spaces.

Jennifer Corcoran has led the way advocating for adult changing stations in Ohio. She has collaborated with her representatives to introduce concurrent bills in the Ohio Senate and the Ohio House of Representatives. Unfortunately, neither bill passed. However, she is still making a big difference in Ohio with her advocacy.

Jennifer is working with her county board of Developmental disabilities to install over 10 universal changing tables in the Dayton, Ohio area. Jennifer also served on the International Code Council's special committee to develop building code for Adult Changing Stations. These standards will be published in the 2024 International Building Code, and serve as a model for adult changing stations across the USA.

In 2022 Kim Boulter joined the Changing Spaces Campaign and is focusing her advocacy on the Central Ohio area. She has reached out to towns surrounding Columbus, the Columbus City council, the Governor's office, the Columbus airport, and many other locations to spread awareness and gain support. Together, Kim & Jennifer hope to grow the Ohio campaign and spread awareness of this issue across the state.

Recent Developments:

  • In 2022 Kim reached out to the Ohio State University many times to encourage them to implement new Univerisity-wide building standards which includes adult size changing tables in family restrooms. The University will be installing two adult changing stations in the new medical tower in OSU Hospital, and will add more throughout campus in the future. 

  • January 2023 Kim and Jennifer met with officials from the Ohio Department of Transportation to discuss making Ohio's highway rest stops more inclusive and accessible by adding adult changing tables. This will allow people to travel throughout our state and be able to use the restroom while they travel. ODOT has not committed to include these yet, but we will continue to advocate. 

  • In February 2023 Governor DeWine announced the proposed state budget for 2024. In the budget he specifically listed adult changing tables as a priority. This is still in the early phases. The budget still needs to be passed by the Ohio House of Representatives and the Ohio Senate, and we do not have hard numbers for how much money will be available to install adult changing tables across the state. We will keep you updated!

  • In 2022, Nationwide Children's hospital committed to including adult changing stations in all new buildings as they expand their campus and renovate. This is now part of their internal building standards, which exceeds the minimum requirement by the state of Ohio. Thank you Nationwide Children's!

  • In November 2022 Kim and Jennifer petitioned the Ohio Board of Building Standards to adopt new building code for adult changing stations. The board was very receptive and approved the petition. The petition still needs to pass through several other committees before receiving final approval. If approved, it will go into effect in January 2024. This will require and NEW assembly and mercantile buildings with 6 or more male and female water closets to include a family restroom with a height-adjustable adult size changing table inside. It will also include the following to have an adult changing station: new highway rest stops, schools that have a public assembly function, such as a large auditorium or gym used by the public, and large college classroom buildings.
