About

Our Mission: We open minds and connect you with a world where everyone is valued

The Disability Network (TDN) is a nonprofit center for independent living that partners with people with disabilities so they can live as independently in the community as possible. Since 1992, TDN has worked with thousands of individuals in the areas of independent living skills development, information and referral, peer counseling, youth and adult transitional living and advocacy. Our goal is to connect you with a world where everyone is valued by working with the community to make it more inclusive and accessible.

We are changing the conversation on disability from fear, pity, victim and stigma to hope, opportunity, expectation, and sense of purpose. We support youth and adults with disabilities using passion, trust and excellence in the following areas:

  • Advocacy
  • Information and Referral
  • Peer Support
  • Nursing Facility Transitions
  • Youth Transitions
  • Independent Living Skills

Mission: We open minds and connect you with a world where everyone is valued!​
