Mission Statement

The Mission of the ENDependence Center of Northern Virginia, Inc. (ECNV) is to empower people with disabilities to live independently. Our goals are to enable individuals with disabilities to: • improve the quality of their lives; • determine their own lifestyles; • participate in all aspects of society; • secure their human and civil rights; • exercise self-advocacy; and • ensure a system for consumer control and policy direction


The ENDependence Center of Northern Virginia, Inc. (ECNV) is a community-based resource and advocacy center which is managed by and for people with disabilities.

ECNV promotes independent living (IL) philosophy and equal access for all persons regardless of disability. We operate from a philosophy of consumer control and peer-to-peer relationships to empower people with physical, mental, cognitive, and sensory disabilities to direct their own lives.

Like the nearly 400 centers for independent living (CIL's) across the country, ECNV grew from local disability rights and self-help movements.
