What We Do

We make sure people with disabilities know their civil rights. We help them protect their rights. DRNC is North Carolina’s protection and advocacy agency.

DRNC gives free legal help and information to people with disabilities in North Carolina. We also visit places where you live, work and go to school to make sure you are safe and treated fairly. We work to make sure you get the supports you need to live as independently as possible. We provide tools and information to help you advocate for yourself, or a family member. We advocate and lobby to improve services and health care. We also take on legal cases to end discrimination and abuse.
