Of all our core services, Information and Referral is the most extensive and utilized. At Disability Resource Center, we provide our consumers with valuable resources through our extensive network of providers and agencies. Our partners are focused focused on community resources for persons with disabilities as well as the elderly. Our goal is to provide resources helping people live their lives as independently as possible in their own homes and communities.
Network of Resources

These resources include: transportation, housing, identifying a personal care attendant or emergency community supports (food, furnishings, disaster planning and preparedness).
