The MCU is one of the first attendant run, mobile, self-contained, and environmentally controlled changing and toileting facility in the United States.

Why is it needed?

There are 232,627 individuals within San Antonio with one or more disabilities. Of these people, there are roughly 117,000 who struggle with living on their own or taking care of themselves on a day-to-day basis. Many of these individuals see lack of appropriate changing and toileting facilities as a significant barrier hindering them from community experiences.

Accessible toilets do not provide these individuals with the room or equipment needed, requiring them to be physically lifted onto toilets or changed on bathroom floors, backseats of cars, or even the hot pavement. These ill-equipped and unsanitary environments can lead to injury or infection. These risks lead to decisions of non-participation.

By offering our disabled community access to the MCU, we have the ability to open up new experiences to you and/or your loved ones to participate and enjoy events and venues not previously available. Imagine this barrier being removed and attending your first Concert, Play, Rodeo, Festival or Museum. That is precisely why we developed the MCU! 

What is it?

The Mobile Changing Unit (MCU) program features a 20 foot trailer with changing and toileting facilities to meet the needs of those with ambulatory disabilities or who require additional changing and toileting assistance. The MCU includes:

  • Power Hoist/Hoyer Lift for safe transfers
  • Height Adjustable Universal Changing Table
  • Handheld Shower Head
  • ADA Toilet with Handlebars
  • Height Appropriate Sink
  • HVAC (Air Conditioning / Heat)

Our Care Model The MAC’s innovative approach provides comprehensive and coordinated medical and non-medical services under one roof. The MAC seeks to help individuals with disabilities and special needs of all ages find the assistance they need to improve their health and well-being.

MAC Navigation: The MAC’s services use a family-centered approach with full collaboration from the family, MAC Member, and community partners known as MACers (pronounced “MACK-ers”). Click here to learn more.

Ultra-Accessible™ means that everyone has the same opportunity to be included and participate intentionally in their community. An Ultra-Accessible™ community should provide environments for people of all abilities where they are set up for mobility, access, and success.

The MAC Navigators The MAC Care Model™ is centered around addressing Non-Medical Drivers of Health (NMDOH) through team members known as MAC Navigators that serve as single points of contact for the individuals with disabilities and special needs that The MAC serves. Click here for the Navigation Road Map.

Pre-screening on The MAC website or in person determines eligibility to become a MAC member.

(For purposes of The MAC at Morgan’s Wonderland™, people with a “special need” are defined as individuals of all ages with long-term impairment of cognitive, sensory, motor and/or communication functions, either congenital or acquired, that are not readily rehabilitated. Furthermore, a special need substantially limits an individual’s ability to perform activities in the range of what is considered typical for a person of the same age and cultural context. A special need may result in associated social, behavioral, or mental health complexities, requiring specialized intervention by a professional. Populations served by the MAC are the range of conditions that are classified as intellectual and developmental disabilities as well as acquired or congenital physical disabilities.)

The MAC serves individuals of all ages.

ADA Adult & Babies Changing Tables available.

There are no income requirements to receive Navigation services.

Our MAC Members are members as long as they continue receiving services at The MAC.

Each of our MACers (community partners) accepts specific forms of insurance. MAC Navigators are able to connect MAC Members with the correct partner.

The park’s overwhelming success and Morgan’s ongoing positive influence have created many other opportunities for inclusion, such as Morgan’s Inspiration Island splash park, Morgan’s Wonderland Camp, Morgan’s Wonderland Sports, and The Multi-Assistance Center at Morgan’s Wonderland, The MAC.
