About Disability Resources | Volunteer Staff | Awards
 
 What We Are...
 
Disability Resources, inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization established to promote and improve awareness, availability and accessibility of information that can help people with disabilities live, learn, love, work and play independently.
 
 Who We Serve...
 
We serve thousands of individuals with disabilities through a multidisciplinary network of service providers and consumers. In order to reach as many people with disabilities as cost effectively as possible, we target our services and publications to libraries, disability organizations, independent living centers, rehabilitation facilities, educational institutions, and health and social service providers.
 
 What We Do...
 
We disseminate information about books, pamphlets, magazines, newsletters, videos, databases, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, telephone hotlines and on-line services that provide free, inexpensive or hard-to-find information to help people with disabilities live independently.
 
 How We Do It...
 
We monitor hundreds of publications, audiovisual materials, on line services, and other information resources every month. We review and report on worthwhile materials in our newsletter, Disability Resources Monthly (DRM), and our other publications. We also maintain an extensive database of disability-related resources in order to perform customized searches, and an on-line guide to disability resources on the World Wide Web. We are proud of the many awards and positive reviews we have received for this work.
 
 Who Does It...
 
We are a small group of volunteers (with and without disabilities) who work professionally in library, communications, and disability-related fields. We were founded by Julie Klauber, a nationally recognized expert in disability information resources, and Avery Klauber, a communications specialist for nonprofit organizations. We are most ably assisted by Sally Rosenthal, Ruth Porfert, and Barbara Olsen, among others. (If you'd like to become part of our efforts, please click here to find out how you can help.)
 
 Awards...
 
Disability Resources and its volunteers have won numerous awards for their work in and out of cyberspace.
 
 How You Can Help...
 
Disability Resources receives no federal or state funds for this web site; the professionals who maintain it are volunteers. Please help us cover the cyber-costs by becoming a sponsor or making an online donation through helping.org's secure server.
