A hand up - not a hand out!

Independent Living means that we demand the same choices and control in our every-day lives that our non-disabled brothers and sisters, neighbors and friends take for granted. We want to grow up in our families, go to the neighborhood school, use the same bus as our neighbors, work in jobs that are in line with our education and interests and start families of our own.

Since we are the best experts on our needs, we need to show the solutions we want, need to be responsible and in charge of our lives, think and speak for ourselves, just as everybody else.



We can help with COVID related concerns

We have an Independent Living Advocate ready to take your call and provide supportive listening, practical peer to peer coping ideas and information to help you get the services you need. Things like Personal Protection Equipment, durable medical goods exchange, accessing resources for food, transportation, transitioning from a nursing home, and in-home personal assistants.
