Our mission is to provide advocacy, services, and education for people with disabilities and our communities.
Independence, Inc. is a Center for Independent Living (CIL) which provides a multitude of independent living services to individuals with disabilities in Douglas, Franklin, and Jefferson Counties. The CIL assists those with disabilities in maneuvering through the complications, questions and potential roadblocks that may be encountered when trying to access the benefits, products and services that meet their needs. The center also offers a series of training opportunities focused on budgeting, self-advocacy, social communication, health and wellness, as well as other areas of life skills management that help those with disabilities take charge of their own life.
