The disABILITY Resource Center (dRC)
is a Center for Independent Living. (CIL) We are a community-based non-residential program of services. We are designed to assist people with disabilities to attain independent lives. In order to achieve independence, we strive to eliminate physical and attitudinal barriers in our community. We have five (not four, as the video states) basic services including Transition, placement of individuals into homes instead of nursing homes.
Individuals are supported in the creation of their own practical plan for independent and meaningful lives based on their priorities, goals, and needs.
Over fifty-one percent of the Board of Directors and staff at our Center for Independent Living are people with disabilities.
Be Street Smart!
dRC initiated its “Street Smart” campaign as part of a national program to increase awareness of street safety to pedestrians, cyclists and drivers.
Crosswalks count and we need to review and re-learn the rules of the road to ensure the safety of all of us, whether on foot, on bikes or in cars.
Don't dismiss this lightly. Our own dRC Board Member, Sandy Booher, was hit by a driver who did not check for pedestrians even though Sandy had a green light and the white pedestrian light. See the video about this incident on WATE 6.
