Our services are making a difference...
L.L., is a 51 year old female who has a primary disability of multiple sclerosis and was living in a nursing home in Richmond. The nursing home contacted RIL because L.L. wanted to move back into the community and live independently. RIL’s Transition Coordinator assisted her in locating affordable housing and obtaining furniture and household items. Staff also assisted her in obtaining a personal attendant to assist with her daily living skills and linked her with a church in order to provide further community supports. She loves having her independence back and continues to do well in her new apartment.
Our mission is assisting persons who are severely disabled to live independently in the community and to encourage necessary change within the community so independent living is a possibility.
Resources for Independent Living will continue to be the premier community resource for individuals with disabilities and will aggressively advance the independent living philosophy. We will continue to advocate for an integrated community in which all people are valued and able to participate in all aspects of society.
