CPWD's goal is an integrated community that equally welcomes all members. The Center for People with Disabilities works so that people with disabilities may live independently. We believe that there is nothing more disabling than pity.
People with disabilities are a powerful and significant part of our community, yet; as a group our social roles have been marginalized by bigotry, discrimination, poverty, isolation, dependency and pity. Americans with disabilities have not had access to transportation, housing and employment that other citizens have enjoyed; CPWD will change that.
