Our Church Opens Minds through awareness about the variety of disabilities that affect people every day. There is no us and them when it comes to disabilities. All people are differently-abled and all people will experience some disability, at least once in life. A parish Opens Minds whenever it takes concrete steps to exercise God's compassion for people who are differently-abled physically, mentally or emotionally. Please consider the tools and resources provided here and refer to links for other specific disabilities on the left sidebar.
National Information Center for Children and Youth with Disabilities www.nichcy.org - offers information on specific disabilities by navigating to Disabilities and then Specific Disabilities (available in Spanish)
