Letter from the Board Chair
Welcome to Disability Rights Pennsylvania’s website!
For more than 40 years, DRP has been providing legal and advocacy services to Pennsylvanian’s with disabilities. There is no charge to individuals for DRP’s services. DRP’s mission is to protect and advance the rights of people with disabilities. DRP brings actions in court and pushes for positive changes in state and federal law. These efforts impact government policy. DRP also advocates on behalf of people who have been abused, neglected or who have experienced individual rights violations.
As a member of the Board of Directors since 2014 and now as Board Chair, I am committed to working with my fellow board members and staff to continue to serve the disability community.
I encourage you to take a look at our website for a snapshot of the exceptional work DRP staff provides. Please meet our staff and review our helpful resources on a variety of disability-related topics. Feel free to contact us through our live intake line or this website if you have a problem or question. We can help.
I also encourage you to consider supporting our work. A donation in any amount really can make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities.
Board Chair, Disability Rights Pennsylvania
