About Us

Disability Concerns is now part of Thrive (read about the name change). We strive to promote and foster relationships, communities, and societies where everybody belongs and everybody serves by assisting churches, agencies, institutions, and leadership within the Reformed Church in America and the Christian Reformed Church in North America

Our Goals:

  • to think and act in keeping with the biblical call regarding people with disabilities
  • to break barriers of communication, architecture, and attitude
  • to establish ministries with, for, and by people with disabilities and their families.
