Our Partners & Collaborators

Building Partnerships

TRPIL practices teamwork. We are committed to forging and strengthening relationships that increase our capacity to serve the community. We believe that disability is a natural part of life experience. Together with our community, we will build a sustainable, interconnected, and welcoming community that values everyone.

Partnerships help TRPIL staff and board of directors serve consumers. This exchange of information and resources among partner agencies assists our community members and consumers to navigate to the right service that would meet their wants and needs – be they health, employment, accessibility, housing, transportation, financial, advocacy, etc.

These associations provide TRPIL with various opportunities to support our mission of affirming liberty and justice for all people with disabilities and to develop future disability programs and policy. We actively seek out and welcome productive relationships – from the departments of federal and state agencies, to national organizations and corporations, to local businesses and non-profits, to the one-on-one partnerships we have with our volunteers, donors, and sustaining members.
