Disabled Parents Rights is a small organization dedicated to combating discrimination that impacts parenting for parents with disabilities. We provide direct representation, advocacy, and technical assistance to disabled parents, as well as their advocates and attorneys.
Disabled parents experience discrimination in a variety of arenas. From a subsidized housing provider that refuses to allow a child to live with her parent, to a court that refuses custody due to a parent’s disability, to a child protection agency that refuses to provide reunification services, disabled parents frequently experience insidious discrimination. This discrimination has a detrimental affect on families, ultimately victimizing both parents and their children.
