Independence on a Mission

The New River Valley Disability Resource Center located in Christiansburg opened its doors in June 2016. Once operating as a satellite of the Blue Ridge Independent Living Center in Roanoke, the NRV DRC’s presence focuses on assisting people with disabilities within the four counties of the New River Valley – Floyd, Montgomery, Pulaski and Giles – plus the city of Radford. But “focus” is a deceiving term when considering the work ahead.
