Who We Are and What We Do
We are a local not for profit that has been empowering the meaningful Independent Living (IL) Philosophy choices, flexibilities and control of all persons with disabilities in our region for more than 30 years. This is best achieved when we come together as a unified community voice in partnership!
We create and deliver unique programs that increase self-directed skill development, employment and recreation opportunities for people with disabilities. This builds a more richly diverse, inclusive and fundamentally accessible community. Through meaningful partnerships, we are increasing the involvement and broadening the reach of all persons with disabilities in our region!
We focus our programs and services on creating direct pathways to meaningful skill development and employment opportunities for any independent person with a disability in our community seeking to become more autonomous. Through funding partnerships, most of our services are completely free to eligible participants.
As you might expect, COVID 19 has had a profound impact on the way we deliver programs and services. We currently remain closed to public contact, however all of our programs and services are operating and thriving virtually (video meetings, telephone, email, etc). The move to providing robust, virtual access has significantly increased our accessibility and flexibility to accommodate an even greater base of community program participants.
