Telling Our Stories

Share Your Story

At Disability Network Northern Michigan, we are helping people with disabilities live fully–engaged and self–directed lives in inclusive communities. We warmly welcome you to read the shared stories from people we have worked with to help them reach their independent living goals.

We cannot do this important work without you. Every gift of donated funds or your time makes a huge difference in the lives of the people we serve. Please consider a donation to Disability Network Northern Michigan or volunteer to be a change agent that enables people with disabilities to live fully–engaged lives.
