About Dayle McIntosh Disability Resource Center
The Dayle McIntosh Center (DMC) is an Orange County-based organization that partners with people with disabilities to address immediate needs and achieve independence. The center has been a community resource for 40 years. DMC works with people without regard for age, race, income, or type of disability. Most of the staff and governing board consist of individuals, who have disabilities themselves and have met the challenge of becoming self-sufficient.
The center is named in memory of Dayle McIntosh, who worked tirelessly to lay the foundation for an independent living center in Orange County. Ms. McIntosh had a congenital disability that significantly limited her physical capacity. She fully managed her own life including obtaining a college education and employment. Regretfully, Ms. McIntosh died at the age of 26, shortly before the center opened. The fierce independence that Dayle McIntosh displayed exemplifies the philosophy and spirit of the center that is part of her legacy.
