Promote, increase and improve opportunities for independent living and lifestyle for persons with disabilities within the six county service area: Adams, Brown, Hancock, McDonough, Pike, and Schuyler.
The Independent Living philosophy is based on the premise that regardless of a person’s disability, all individuals have the right and the responsibility to make life-controlling choices which determine the direction of their own life. That includes full and meaningful social participation as equal members of the community.
