Community Based Rehab

DSC 3043The Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) concept encourages projects and programs that involve people with disabilities, and their families, within the communities themselves. CBR involves working closely with persons with disabilities and their families to overcome physical and sociological barriers within their communities through a holistic approach to a person and their environment in the areas of health, education, livelihood, social inclusion, skill development and empowerment.

The CBR matrix gives an overall visual representation of CBR. It consists of five key components (health, education, etc), each divided into five key elements. Each of these elements has a dedicated chapter in the guidelines. These guidelines were created following the International Consultation to Review Community-Based Rehabilitation, held in Helsinki, Finland in 2003. (http://www.miusa.org)

The Inspiration Center has Rehabilitation Field Officers in the Belize, Toledo, Orange Walk, and Cayo districts.
