As a private non-profit protection and advocacy organization, NDALC operates the CAP in a truly independent and autonomous manner in conformance with the spirit and the letter of federal law. With locations in 3 communities, NDALC has a greater ability to serve applicants and clients of the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) and Independent Living (IL) programs statewide, and to provide statewide outreach and education.
