Peer Support

We offer Peer Support and Counseling for persons with disabilities as they work toward either obtaining or maintaining independent lives in the community.  Peers are individuals who have something in common with each other and provide role modeling and often the motivation in others to envision the possibilities and develop the strategies to obtain their vision for themselves.
