The North Texas Disability Chamber (NTXDC) shall promote a more cohesive, transparent, informed, regional, member-based, cross-disability community via events and education hosted at accessible locations across North Texas.  

The organization's guiding pillars are threefold: Community Building, Community Education, and Interactive Engagement between People with Disabilities (PWDs) and People without Disabilities (PWOD). 

Our five values which drive our guiding pillars are: Community, Collaboration, Confidence, Equity and Inclusion.
