Disability Resources

Q: We recently moved and need to find disability-related resources in our new community. Where do we start?

A: Starting over in a new place can be challenging, even without a disability! Consider contacting the Joni and Friends Area Ministry nearest you. Not only will you be connected with local resources, but you may also make some great new friends! Our Area Ministry can also connect you with local churches with disability ministries. You are probably already familiar with Independent Living Centers, where you can obtain local information and referrals, independent living skills training, advocacy, and peer counseling. In many parts of the country, you can dial 2-1-1 on your telephone to learn about local assistance agencies. You can also learn more about a variety of disability-related organizations nearby through the extensive state-by-state lists provided by United Cerebral Palsy.
