Transitional Paths to Independent Living affirms liberty and justice for all people with disabilities.
TRPIL is a multi-service agency assisting people with disabilities throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania. Last year, we served over 3,000 individuals through our various programs. For over 27 years, TRPIL has been providing independent living skills training, information and referral services, peer support, advocacy, and transition assistance. Transitions include leaving a nursing home to one’s own home or apartment or high school students who are starting a career or attending a college or technical school. TRPIL works with nearly 600 direct care workers who daily work with 600 consumers in daily living skills (getting out of bed, meal preparations, light housework, etc.). Last year, TRPIL transitioned 82 individuals who did not want to live in a nursing home but wanted to live in their own apartment or home with assistance. The program also completes many home modifications that allow individuals to live in their own homes by adding ramps, kitchen, or bathroom renovations. We also provide assistive technology equipment through a lending library to see if a device could make someone’s life easier such as an adaptive telephone, keyboard, or eating utensil! One in five individuals in their lifetime will either experience a disabling accident or have an age-related disability. TRPIL stands ready to make that transition smoother and more independent for the person.
