Northern Nevada Disability Resource Network was launched in July 2010.  NNVDRN was founded by Amy Auerbach, a mother of a son born with developmental delays and later discovered a rare chromosomal abnormality. Despite the efforts of obtaining services for her baby she was limited to referrals. 

While so many parents like Ms. Auerbach, she was inspired to develop a resource network to ensure families in her community have access to quality services and support.
