The Center for Disability Resources (CDR) is one of 67 University Centers for Excellence in developmental disabilities education, research and service, located in major universities throughout the U.S. We function as a bridge to connect the knowledge, expertise and resources of the university to persons with disabilities and the service delivery systems of the community.

Our mission is to enhance the well-being and quality of life of persons with disabilities and their families. We collaborate with persons with disabilities and their families to develop new knowledge and best practices, train leaders, and effect systems change.

The Center for Disability Resources is proud to be a part of the SC Disability Vaccine Access Network. The network has launched a new website SCDisabilityVaccine.org and a Hotline at 1-800-787-6046 to educate individuals in the disability community about the importance of the COVID-19 vaccine, provide help to overcome barriers to getting vaccinated, and to help those who want to get vaccinated to get the shot.

The goal of the network is to provide vaccine information in a plain-language, accessible format that can easily be distributed among the disability community and related audiences, and to serve as a guide for people with disabilities in SC who may face barriers to getting the vaccine.  Partners include Able South Carolina,
 AccessAbilityDisability Rights SC, the South Carolina Developmental Disabilities Council, the University of South Carolina Center for Disability Resources and Walton Options.
