We work closely with those who have disabilities and with other community organizations to find and remove barriers that prevent full participation in life.

The VDRC strives to be an invaluable resource for the local community, to become an essential service for persons with disabilities and to serve as liaison for non-profit organizations, businesses, and government agencies that provide and promote accessibility. The VDRC is funded by public and private grants, parking permit sales, fundraising, and donations.
