We are your Center for Independent Living serving Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Franklin, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty, and Washington counties in the Florida panhandle.
The Disability Resource Center is a member of FACIL, the Florida Association of Centers for Independent Living.
Due to our small staff size, most services are provided by appointment.
Loan Locker: This program allows consumers to borrow equipment such as wheelchairs, canes, walkers, or other necessities; and businesses can borrow equipment as well to make any event handicap accessible.
FTRI: The Disability Resource Center is now a distribution point for Florida Telecommunication Relay, Inc (FTRI). The specialized telephone equipment and ring signaling devices provided through this program are loaned to all qualified permanent Florida residents for as long as they need it at no charge.
Social Security:Helping consumers apply for Social Security benefits by assisting the consumer in gathering all necessary forms and documents.
Services are available to all persons with disabilities and their families. We are committed to collaborating with other disability/consumer-focused organizations in our community. For more information, please contact us.
