EQUAL ACCESS * INCLUSION * PEER SUPPORT
Valley Disability Support Group and Online Resource was founded in 2019 in response to treatment gaps experienced by Dr. Victoria Newman, a Traumatic Brain Injury Survivor. Her primary focus is a commitment to equal access to good quality Healthcare, Resources to local, state and national programs for TBI Survivors and Caregivers, Empowerment and Advocacy for TBI Survivors and disabled individuals in our community.
Connect with peers through group support and one-on-one peer mentoring. Programs and advocacy tools promote resiliency and hope for individuals and their caregivers across disabilities. Let us help you fulfill your goals.

Valley Disability Support is committed to anti-racism, equal access and inclusion in all we do for everyone regardless of race, nationality and gender. Inequality and racial disparities are consequential and their effects undermine equal access, inclusion and self-determination for disabled individuals of color and the LGBTQ+ community.
