On Feb. 12, 2016, CDR moved its offices to 369 Highland St., in West Haven, which is about a 15-20 minute walk, or a 5-minute drive from the old office on Campbell Ave. Click here to visit the Contact Us page to get directions to the new office.

CDR is a membership organization of persons with disabilities that operates a Center for Independent Living (CIL). Based in West Haven, Connecticut, the Center for Disability Rights advocates for people with disabilities and their issues on a local, state-wide, and national level. We also provide services to individuals and their families, as well as technical assistance and community education to businesses, government, and members of the community.

CDR fully serves the following towns:

West Haven; Milford; Orange; Woodbridge; Madison, Clinton, and Westbrook.

CDR offers limited services in the form of Information & Referral services; nursing facility transition services; augumentive communication services; and the HEOS cross disability support group to the following towns:  Shelton; Derby; Ansonia; Seymour; Bethany; New Haven; East Haven; Hamden; North Haven; Wallingford; Durham;  Meriden; Southington; Middlefield; Middletown; North Branford; Branford; Guilford; Old Saybrook; Killingworth; Deep River; Chester; Haddam; East Haddam; East Hampton; and Portland.

We apologize for any inconvenience. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy eliminated the funding for most of our towns; and, as much as we would like to continue serving all the residents of all the towns in our area, we simply cannot do so.

If you have a question about accessibility, the ADA, disability discrimination, or a general inquiry; please use our “Ask The ADA Person” feature.
