Welcome to YourVoiceMattersPA.org, an information and outreach hub for the disability community! This website is part of a project by the Lehigh Valley Center for Independent Living (LVCIL) supported financially by the Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council (PADDC).
LVCIL is exploring ways to expand the disability community across Pennsylvania and to bring diverse communities into the conversation on topics such as stigma, inclusion, and other topics of cultural importance. We will also be partnering with agencies, organizations, and individuals from throughout the state to help promote the disability agenda and build a network of agencies working together for the same cause!
LVCIL is putting on a series of forums around the Commonwealth to discuss these types of topics and more! Visit the 'Upcoming Events' tab on the side of this page for more information and registration.
If you are interested in joining the conversation via the written word or video blog, please reach out to LVCIL project staff here!
LVCIL has engaged the community with support from the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation and the Statewide Independent Living Council. The Strategic Community Building Project's Personal Experience Survey Report can be found here.
There are other great resources to find on this website and will be continually added to! For more information on this website or LVCIL’s Community Building efforts, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
