Peer Support

This service provides support and peer counseling for persons with disabilities as they work toward and/or maintain an independent life-style within their community. Peers tend to serve as excellent role models, often providing the motivation in others to envision the possibilities and develop the strategies to obtaining those visions. Information, one-on-one peer mentoring, and group interactions helping people with disabilities develop mutual support, assistance, and understanding.

Peer Support Groups:

Our Peer Support Groups are lead and controlled by persons with disabilities. Staff facilitate our Peer Support Groups by providing meeting rooms, transportation, and guest speakers. Staff participate in the group’s activities as requested. Persons with disabilities are connected to these groups for peer support, peer mentoring and social/recreational interactions.

Peer Mentoring:

Peer mentoring allows a person with a disability to work with other persons with disabilities who are members of their local community. This interaction allows for exploring options, solving problems, making adjustments to a newly acquired disability, discussing changes in living arrangements, and learning to use community services more effectively. This interaction is beneficial for both the peer mentor and the person with a disability.
