The Disability Network of West Michigan - Independent Living Resources for Muskegon and More

Did you know?  That Muskegon is home to a very important resource for those with a disability?

The Disability Network West Michigan is right down on Clay Avenue by The United Way of Muskegon and their mission statement is pretty simple -

"Disability Network West Michigan provides independent living resources for people with disabilities in Muskegon, Oceana, Newaygo, Lake and Mason counties"

Visit the Disability Network WM Online!
I was made aware of this organization by a quick Facebook message from Tracy Knight who wondered if I had ever even heard of such an organization and I had to be honest with the guy and say, "No, I had not"

They handle everything from being an advocate for those who are disabled, to supportive peers, to independent living and transition planning and action.  It's a remarkable undertaking.  So like many other organizations in Muskegon you might not know about, I grabbed the camera and headed down to meet Danna Pittman and Tamera Collier to learn a little more about their work and how many lives they impact.  Take a listen to the chat below!

Here's a look at the flyer for the 2016 Discover Muskegon Resource Fair coming up!  Please take the time to stop down and see what's being offered and to see if you can lend a hand to the awesome work going on right here in Muskegon.
