Peer Support

The goal of peer support is to have staff, who have disabilities themselves, serve as mentors to people who have similar disabilities. The staff helps promote personal growth by sharing their own experiences and explaining how they have coped with the “ups and downs” of having a disability.
In the case of a person with a newly acquired disability, the peer mentor helps with the radical change in life style that is often forthcoming by offering emotional support, helping solve problems and sorting out life goals.
