About Us

Individual attention and accountability are top priorities for The Disability Foundation staff. We take our responsibility to our beneficiaries and families very seriously and are often on a first name basis with the individuals we serve. It’s this personal connection and attention to detail that so many of our clients depend on when it comes to establishing a trust for their financial resources. 

Our Mission

The mission of The Disability Foundation is to enhance the quality of life for persons with disabilities by complementing public benefits through the prudent management of financial resources.
