KV Committee For Disabled Persons

Who Are We?

 We are a group of volunteers whose goal is to enrich the lives of disabled persons in our community by broadening their access to everyday places and increasing public awareness of the various disabilities many people face. 

The KV Committee for Disabled Persons Inc. began as a Municipal Advisory Committee in 1988 and became incorporated in 2001. We believe in the objectives of raising awareness of disabilities and the need for improving accessibility of public places. Letter writing, fundraising, barbecues and speaking in schools keep our volunteers busy year round.

Our Mission Statement:

Our vision is for all citizens with disabilities to be able to live and enjoy life within the towns of Quispamsis and Rothesay. Our mission is to improve the lives of residents with disabilities in the Kennebecasis Valley by providing opportunities to fully participate in the community.
