We’re here to help

If you’re a person with any disability of any age who lives in Franklin, Delaware, Licking, or Union County Ohio, the Center for Disability Empowerment (CDE) can help you find resources to live, learn, worship, work, and play in your community, in your own way.

Our community-based, non-residential center is guided by your choices. We will help you create an Independent Living Plan (ILP) with the steps and resources you need to reach your goals, whether they’re big or small. Here are a few examples:

Learn skills

Such as how write a letter, interview for a job, manage money, or apply for benefits

Find services

Such as transportation options, healthy resources, or personal care assistance

Defend your rights

By gaining access, speaking up, or working for broader change
