DSLC Mission Statement

Words from Executive Director Adam Brown

Our Mission

Advancing the rights of people with disabilities to equal justice, access, opportunity and participation in our communities.

Our Philosophy

We believe People with Disabilities, to the maximum extent possible, as an inherent civil right, should direct their own lives and make their own decisions as to what is and what is not in their best interest.

Our role is to empower these individuals to live as independently as they so desire, helping them to overcome physical, economic, and other societal barriers to do so.

With a dedicated staff and enthusiastic board involved in this process of reinvention, you are sure to see and hear much more from this organization.

Much of our effectiveness relies on the efforts of the community at large. Whether you have personal experience with a disability or simply have a desire to help others in need, there is a role for you at DSLC. Volunteers play an essential role in our organization, participating in day-to-day operations and all community events. Donors, of all levels, ensure that quality services continue to be delivered, regardless of governmental funding trends.

Friends spread the word: If it involves disability, call DSLC.

  1. Thank you for liking my blog about dropping my “picker-upper.” Love your philosophy and what you all are doing to enhance the lives of people such as myself!! I don’t like the term “disabled” but prefer to call myself differently-challenged…. however, when I can’t pick up my picker-upper, this girl’s got problems! 🙂
    God bless you all! I’m not in California but can appreciate the work you do!!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my post “Laughing at my Nightmare”. I had no idea you folks were out there – very excited to find out about DSLC! I’ll be sharing a link to your sight with our therapy clinic.

    I do have a question for you about exoskeleton devices. My daughter has a rare form of muscular dystrophy called ARSACS. ARSACS causes spasticity and ataxia and also affects her balance. I’m wondering if exoskeletons can be used by individuals with those kinds of physical complications.

    Thanks again for stopping by Boxx Banter!
