Center for Community Based Research to Action

The central purpose of the Center for Community Based Research to Action is to provide the knowledge and resources needed, so that persons with and without disabilities can create communities in which we all want to live.

Persons with disabilities need useful information in order to change our lives and our community. Our central purpose is to research the nature of the problems we face and the evidence-based solutions to these problems, and to make these findings available in a clear, jargon free form. We do this because it is our belief that knowledge in a usable form is the beginning of effective personal and community change.
