About Us

Independent Living assists eligible individuals with significant disabilities in obtaining services that:

  1. Provide an alternative to institutionalization, when possible.
  2. Improve functioning in the family, home and community.
  3. Assist in preparing a person for a vocational rehabilitation program.

Services may be provided directly, purchased, or coordinated through other community agencies.  If Independent Living is unable to meet a person’s needs, that individual may be referred to other agencies for services as appropriate.

An individual may be eligible for Independent Living Services if all of the following apply:

  • The person has a significant disability
  • The disability severely limits the person’s ability to live independently, and
  • Receipt of services will significantly improve the person’s ability to live independently

Some services have financial eligibility criteria.
