Like other centers for independent living around the country (click here for national listing), Disability Connections (DC) is non-residential, meaning it is not a place to live but a place to assist individuals how to live a better life with dignity, respect and as a valued member of our community. DC is a non-profit charitable organization accepting a wide variety of funding to serve consumers and impact our communities. DC is governed and staffed by a majority of people with different types of significant disabilities. This is what we mean by consumer controlled.
