Incorporated in 1976, the Disabled Resources Center, Inc. was founded by Jerry Stein, Lee Tardy and Warren Moss. Guided by the vision and dedication of the founders, the services offered by DRC evolved from giving information and referrals, to providing eighteen services to thousands of people each year in the cities of Artesia, Avalon, Cypress, Hawaiian Gardens, Lakewood, La Palma, Long Beach, Seal Beach, and Signal Hill; plus 52 ZIP Codes in the City of Long Beach, Los Angeles County and Orange County, California.
Most of the staff members are people with disabilities, as are the members of the Board of Directors, who provide positive role models for other people with disabilities. The mission of the agency is, “To empower people with disabilities to live independently in the community, to make their own decisions about their lives and to advocate on their own behalf”.
