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:
