EQUAL ACCESS * INCLUSION * PEER SUPPORT
Valley Disability Support Group was founded in 2019 in response to treatment gaps experienced by Dr. Victoria Newman, a Traumatic Brain Injury Survivor and mother of two. Our primary focus is a commitment to equal access to good quality healthcare, resources and wellness for the disabled in our community.
We provide programs to navigate living with disabilities including patient advocacy. Connect with peers through virtual meetings. 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.
Our pledge to you is that we will continue to work against racism in all forms. Racial disparities are consequential and its effect undermine equal access, inclusion and self-determination for disabled individuals of color.
