Let’s Talk About Employment!

When you have a disability whether it is visible or invisible your opportunities to network and find employment might be influenced by whether you can leave your home, have internet and phone access or access to transportation. One way to build your network is to consider volunteering your time in the community.

Want to Know what People With Disabilities said about Poverty Reduction?

On Saturday March 10th, a group of 17 people sat down to discuss poverty reduction. Here’s what they said: REPORT on Poverty Reduction Community Meeting for People with Disabilities and their Families


Here’s what People with Disabilities and their Families said about Housing

In 2016, the NSDRC Association and Foundation Boards began a housing engagement project called Options for Us – Housing for People with Disabilities on the North Shore with the goal of asking a range of people with disabilities and their families and caregivers about the current housing situation, and what would work better.

The report can be viewed as a PDF here: Final Report on Options for Us Engagements
