Peer Support

Peer support is people with disabilities helping people with disabilities. Our staff and volunteers share their experiences with those who have similar disabilities, and provide information about available resources including transportation, job search, and more.

People who have been in your situation understand you best. In peer counseling you talk with those who have been in your shoes and shared your experiences. A person who has a disability and experienced barriers in their community will assist other individuals with similar disabilities to overcome their barriers.
