About

The New River Valley Disability Resource Center assists individuals with disabilities to live independently. The center also serves the community at large by helping to create an environment that is accessible to all.

The New River Valley Disability Resource Center (NRV DRC) is a newly established Center for Independent Living (CIL), serving the New River Valley. We help people with disabilities live independently and work to create an accessible community.

NRV DRC is a private non-profit community agency, supported in part by a grant from The Commonwealth of Virginia and the Department for Aging and Rehabilitative services (DARS), the federal government, and through generous individual contributions. Governed by a local Board of Directors of which the majority identify themselves as disabled, NRV DRC serves residents in Floyd, Montgomery, Pulaski & Giles counties and the City of Radford.
