Our Mission

The mission of Northern Nevada Disability Resource Network is to provide a centralized resource for individuals with disabilities, seniors and veterans' to connect to service providers, support groups and businesses in the Northern Nevada communities.

We welcome caregivers, social workers, educators, family and friends, and anyone who seeks assistance on locating providers.

What is Northern Nevada Disability Resource Network

Originally named Northern Nevada Disability Access the website launched in early July 2010.  We respectfully changed the project name to Northern Nevada Disability Resource Network in September 2019.

Who Inspired NNVDRN

Prior to the website being launched, a mother of a developmentally disabled child, now a young adult, inspired her to help families like herself have access to resources in Northern Nevada. 

What Motivates Us

We chose to be a resource project to network with community service providers. 

How do we envision the future?

We became a resource network to invoke information, inspiration, and inclusion awareness of the communities in Northern Nevada.  NNVDRN is not a non-profit organization. 

Partnerships welcome

NVDRN is seeking a partnership with an established non-profit or community fiscal sponsor to maintain our budgetary needs. Our goal has been to apply to be a nonprofit. 

Partnerships must maintain at least a one-year contractual agreement assigned by the parties.  Details will be discussed prior to the signing of the agreement.

Susan’s son needed transition services once he graduated high school.  She met with the school’s guidance counselor for recommendations.  Susan was concerned that her son would not be able to transition into an independent program once he graduated high school.
