Providing Independent Living Services

Independent Living (IL) Centers were founded on the belief that people with disabilities belong in the community, not in institutions.  The first IL Center was organized during the 1960s in Berkeley, California. Now there are over 500 IL Centers across the United States.

Independent Living is categorized as the area of life pertaining to housing, utilities, transportation, communication, recreation, and  access to health and social services.  The Alliance may assist any participant with a disability in obtaining and/or maintaining these core aspects of life.
