Core Services

Independent Living

Paul ready to drive away Paul using lift to get into van Independent Living is a philosophy and a worldwide movement by people with disabilities for self-determination, self-respect and equal opportunities. All individuals have the right to choose the services that they want to receive and to make decisions about how to live their lives.

The purpose of the Independent Living Movement is to remove barriers for people with disabilities. Disabled people are entitled to have the same opportunities for raising families of their own, getting an education and working.
The outdated and predominantly medical view which portrays people with disabilities as sick continues to have negative and real consequences for all of society. Independent Living Centers across the country work towards empowering people with disabilities to live productive and independent lives within their communities.
