The Cape Organization for Rights of the Disabled (CORD) has been aggressively working since 1984 to advance the independence, productivity, and integration of people with disabilities, including deaf and hard of hearing people, into mainstream society.
You may want to contact CORD if:
- You want to learn more about your disabled child's educational rights;
- You are a disabled adult needing information on vocational rehabilitation, Social Security, Medicaid, Section 8 housing, or the PCA program;
- You are an individual, a community agency, or a business in need of technical assistance regarding the ADA;
- You or a family member want to leave an institution, such as a nursing home, to pursue a more independent life.

CORD’s Advocate of the Day will be available to meet with people needing assistance who don’t have an appointment weekdays with the exception of Monday mornings.
Please note that this schedule is subject to change. If the Advocate of the Day is not available you can leave a detailed message and an advocate will contact you.
CORD needs job coaches!
Do you have some time starting in April to help a youth with a disability in his/her first job? CORD's Transitional Internship Program (TIP) needs you! Participants will work 8 hours per week for 12 weeks. Job coaches will be paid $15 per hour and may work with more than one participant if the schedules allow. Most internships will be in the upper cape area, although we may have a couple in the mid cape area. To apply or for more information call CORD at 508-775-8300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winter Weather Info
During winter storms, CORD's office will be closed if the Barnstable Public Schools have closed.
