TRAVERSE CITY, MICHIGAN, AUGUST 12, 2021. Peer support is one of the core services at Disability  Network. Who better knows the issues that individuals face than another person with a disability. We strive to support  engagement and relationship building as peer groups help prevent social isolation by connecting with others. Visit  online at disabilitynetwork.org/events/ for event details.
