The Disability Friendly Community in the Lehigh Valley (DFC) is comprised of individual and organization representative members, each committed to a common vision for building on the rich array of resources already present to improve the disability-friendliness of the Lehigh Valley region of eastern Pennsylvania.
DFC is designed as a self-governing community collaborative that operates on – and most definitely benefits from – the talents, resources, goodwill and energies contributed by its members. It does not replace or compete with disability-specific agencies or programs serving people with disabilities and their families or other caregivers in our region but provides the arena for all advocates to come together for information-sharing, networking, collaboration and action!
