The woman on the right is laying on the ground and propping her head in her hands while the woman on the right leans against the other with her hands on her shoulders.Our peer support program provides information, one-on-one peer mentoring, and group interaction helping people with disabilities develop mutual support, assistance, and understanding from the community. DRC provides peer support in a consumer-directed manner – over the telephone, in person when a consumer visits the center, or by visiting the consumer at his or her living site if necessary.

DRC IL Advocates are trained in the philosophy and practice of independent living (IL) and communicate IL strategies to consumers in peer support interactions. We are always looking for individuals interested in helping others cope with difficult issues. If you think you may be interested in participating in our peer support program, please call our office or Contact Us.
