Mission Statement

To promote the philosophy of Independent Living by creating opportunities, encouraging choices, advancing equal access, and furthering the level of independence for all people with disabilities.

Description

In 1957 Independent Living Resources (ILR) began its life of community service. In those early years the agency manually transcribed and duplicated Braille textbooks. Over time this agency expanded services to the blind community. Activities such as orientation and mobility, skills training, crafts, and recreation were there for the asking. Since 1994 services have been extended to people with all disabilities. Through ILR's many changes, a common thread has been our non-profit status and our perseverance in helping others. By offering the four core services of Advocacy, Information and Referral, Peer Counseling and Skills Training, Independent Living Resources helps people to help themselves.
