For almost forty years, our network has monitored the quality of care people with disabilities receive from hospitals, clinics, and other facilities. But veterans receiving care in VA facilities are not entitled to the same protection and advocacy. It's time for that to change.

Support NDRN with a Year End Gift

Did you know it is estimated that people with disabilities make up 20 percent of the population? Yet our voices are often drowned out and our needs neglected. That’s why NDRN exists—to make sure our country respects the rights of people with disabilities. And that we are afforded the same opportunities to live the American Dream. 

Give to NDRN and you support our fight to protect and advocate for the rights of people with disabilities.
