- We just unveiled a new, revitalized brand — an endeavor over two years in the making. The new brand is rolling out across 35 of our affiliates this year, with another 25 turning in 2017 and the remaining in 2018. This brand is our re-introduction to the American public as the indispensable resource for individuals and families facing disabilities.
- You’ll see our new brand take hold over our website, social media, through a variety of communications and across our local centers over the next year.
- One thing we aren’t changing is who we support or how we make a difference. We remain the champion for people living with disabilities, veterans, caregivers and families—taking on disability, together.
