Our services are making a difference...
DW is a 35 year old female with a primary disability of Cerebral Palsy. She wanted to live independently in the community. She was assisted by staff in getting an evaluation for a vehicle modification so that she could continue driving. In the interim, alternative means of transportation were identified and accessed. She was highly motivated throughout the time she was a consumer and recently finished college earning her degree in Social Work. She is now looking for a full time job with her new degree.
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.
