Resource Center

No matter where you are on your journey with disability, the resource center is here for you! Call or stop in Monday – Thursday between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm with extended hours on Tuesday nights until 8:00 pm.

Come meet with a parent who is on a similar journey, one of our resource guides, over some Chance's pie and coffee. After your conversation with a resource guide, the resource navigator will look into resources on your behalf and set up a follow-up appointment. At your follow-up appointment, the resource navigator will meet with you, go over relevant resources, and answer any questions that you have.

Our hope is to help you navigate the complex and sometimes confusing world of disability resources while also walking the journey alongside you and your family. All resource meetings are confidential.
