& Staff

Guiding our Vision & Mission

At Disability Resource Center, our Board of Directors is a consumer driven board. This means 51% of those serving on the Board have a disability themselves. Some are even previous consumers.

The DRC Board meets on the third Tuesday of every month at 11:45 AM at our Demorest office. These meetings are open to the public. We do request, if you would like to attend a DRC meeting and require accommodations, please submit your request at least two weeks prior to the meeting.
