About Us

The Disability Rights & Resource Center was established on September 16, 2013. Formerly known as the Independent Living Services for the Piedmont Area, the DRRC is a private, non-profit, community agency with non-residential programs. The DRCC serves the counties of Franklin, Henry, Patrick and Pittsylvania, as well as the independent cities of Martinsville and Danville. Support for our services is received from local and state sources and donations from businesses and individuals in the service area. The DRRC is governed by a Board of Directors with a majority of members having disabilities.
