Welcome to The Disability Network of the Thumb
As the disability resource of the thumb, we work with individuals, their families and other organizations and agencies to help people with disabilities live independently. With an administration office in Port Huron and staff in St. Clair, Lapeer, Sanilac, Tuscola, and Huron Counties we help over 4,500 people with disabilities and their families lead productive lives each year. In many cases, our efforts extend beyond the people we serve to benefit the entire community. Our accomplishments and track record come, fundamentally, from the diversity of people served, their multiple needs, and service to the whole individual.
Very often we hear the question, What is Disability Network of the Thumb? We are a consumer-driven organization that advocates, informs and supports all people with disabilities to live independently. This is our creed, we believe that no one should be excluded from participation in the community due to disability; that disabilities are a normal part of life; that self-determination is essential to our dignity as human begins; that the best people to address issues of disability in the community are people with disabilities; that all people have equal access to all aspects of life and community.
The Disability Network of the Thumb BWCIL is a consumer driven organization that advocates, informs, and supports all people with disabilities to live independently.
Independent Living is the right of ALL people to make informed choices, to have personal control over their own lives, and to participate to the fullest extent possible in the everyday activities of work, school, home, family, and community.
