NAIDW is a wonderful source of information for disabled workers. As a mental health professional, I know how essential it is for disabled people not to get isolated and lose hope. NAIDW, through it's terrific website and it's volunteers provides hope for all disabled workers. It helps people regain their place in the mainstream by affording them comraderie, humor, information to deal with complex legalistic and governmental problems, and opportunities to help others through volunteerism -- to name but a few of it's many benefits. It's people are warm, engaging, honest, and dedicated to helping disabled workers. I highly recommend it.

I became disabled after falling at work and breaking both femurs. NAIDW has provided a community where I can find resources and others who have gone down this path before me and I can learn from other's experience. When I had a specific question, I got a phone call with answers. This is an important organization for injured/disabled workers. It has helped maintain my sanity in an otherwise insane situation. Thank You!!!

Was injured at work with much lacking of the resources the state of Ohio being utilized for the injured worker. Found this website on a day in my search of help from my work injury, and joined. As a member I have found this to be a great website to associate with other's whom are in some what of the same situation. A way to post, share thoughts, find a mutual understanding, it does not do what the agencies did not do for help, but it does not leave the public at a complete loss from so much lacking of what is supposed to be there for the public.

I was injured at work and most people have not gone threw this experience. Your kinda just blindly wondering what do I do? Whats going to happen next? What rights do I have? And many more worries and frustrations. It was very much a comfort to find NAIDW. Reading about things other people were going threw and realizing I'm not alone helped me a lot. I also asked questions and they directed me to where I could find the answers. I can also relate to facebook posts. Sometimes they are funny and lighten my spirits and others just show me that others understand what I'm going threw. I got hurt 3 years ago and now I am finally legally declared fully disabled and recieve my disability checks. Pain management helps me have some kind of life other than in terrible pain in the bed day in and day out. I want to thank NAIDW for bieng a valuable ray of hope, in what seamed at the time, to be a hopeless situation. God Bless your organization!

NAIDW has been an excellent resource for me with regard to workplace rights, medical information, disability benefits, & overall support.
Reading other disabled workers' posts/stories has given me a lot of hope & encouragement.

Resources are the best part of NAIDW's website. I use it often. If you are in need of assistance as an injured or disabled worker or know someone who does have a need, stop over at NAIDW's website. Finding the resources in one place is more useful than you would believe. You always know where to look for that special need.
Prescriptions for yourself and for your assistance animal or pet can cost high dollars. NAIDW offers discount prescription cards for you and for you assistance animal or pet. I asked for them and they were promptly sent. Now I use these discount cards quite often.
Discount prescriptions is only one benefit of using NAIDW's website. You can find legal resources, social connections, plus a plethora of other helps.

I truly appreciate the resources and uplifting positive nature !

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it available for everyone! In other words, give low income, disabled, injured people access to free internet while waiting for ssi or ss or low cost, and really I guess that's not this organization that's just a overall wish
