What is Disability Next Door?

One in three South Carolinians has a disability.

People with disabilities have thoughts, feelings, ideas, and dreams. 

The myth that we are not valuable and active members of the community is just not true.  We serve in leadership positions, volunteer our time, and donate to causes we care about.

Disability is not a bad word.  It is who we are, and we don’t want to be ignored.

We are proud of who we are.

We are your neighbors.

We want you to know that we are people above all else.

Position Statement:

We are South Carolinians with disabilities. Disability does not mean a stereotype.  We are valuable to our community. We are your neighbors, leaders, mentors, teachers, and business partners.  We are change-makers! We are Disability Next Door.

Mission Statement: 

Challenging stereotypes about people with disabilities, so we are accepted and included in communities throughout South Carolina.

Vision Statement:

We want you to know that we are people above all else.
