At the Disability Empowerment Center, a person with a disability can connect with other persons with similar disability experiences, to assist them in reaching their Independent Living goal.
The objective is to explore options and to solve problems that sometimes occur for people with disabilities, for example, adjusting to living with a newly acquired disability, experiencing changes in living arrangements, or learning to use community services more effectively.
