 “Empowering people with disabilities to fully  participate in the community.”

Disability Rights and Resources seeks to equip people with disabilities, the resources and tools needed to be independent and connected within the community.

Our goal is to help people make decisions for themselves and to change the community’s perception of people with disabilities.
