Peer Supporters serve as role models, as only someone with personal experience with disabilities can do. They share life experience and bring new ideas and information to facilitate independence. They work one-on-one, in small groups, and hold regular monthly Peer Support Groups for those interested—both on-site and online. Please check out our schedule below:

Empower Hour

  • In-person meets the fourth Thursday of every month from 4:00 -5:00 PM in our Upstate and Columbia office. *NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, in-person Empower Hours are cancelled until further notice. However, we have increased our opportunities for online empower hours below:
