Narrative

The JF&CS Disability Resource Network (DRN) is a free information, referral, and consultation service. The DRN works with families, professionals, and people with a wide range of disabilities, helping them connect with programs and services that promote the fullest participation in the community. Callers receive professional assistance in identifying resources related to education, vocational training, housing, finances, religious life, recreation, and other aspects of community living.

The DRN provides guidance in navigating the various systems of support available to an  individual with disabilities, and offers a compassionate place to consider steps for transition, support, and futures planning.

The Disability Resource Network is an important centralized resource for individuals with disabilities and mental illness, their families, and community agencies.
