CDR, Inc., founded in 1970, is a statewide grassroots membership organization, with the purpose of helping people with disAbilities gain and maintain equality, justice and independence.

ALERT:  We are reorganizing due to the loss of our IRS status, and we are applying for re-authorization for the non-profit status again. In the meantime, the IRS says that we cann accept small donations without the IRS non-profit status, as long as the income is less than $5,000. We are up to date with the California Secretary of State.
