At Disability Network, it’s in our power to change everything, from individual lives to the wider community. We help people with disabilities and their families lead more productive lives in Northern Lower Michigan.  But our efforts don’t just benefit them. They help everyone, with and without disabilities, who lives in, works in, or passes through our community.  It’s our mission to promote personal empowerment and positive social change for people with disabilities.
