INDEPENDENT LIVING RESOURCE
Our Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Agency 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. We value personal growth and self- determination. ILR aims to provide a supportive and encouraging environment for every stage of life.

In 1957 Independent Living Resources (ILR) began its life of community service. In those early years the agency manually transcribed and duplicated Braille textbooks.

WELCOME TO
Independent Living Resources

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.

MEET OUR STAFF
Come Get To Know Us

We at Independent Living Resources (ILR) invite you to meet us and learn about our agency and our mission.

Some staff may offer limited face-to-face appointments at outside settings like public parks or at the ILR picnic tables. ILR staff and consumers must be masked and practice social distancing. Appointments in the building will eventually start again in 2022 when pandemic infection rates have returned to low levels. Please speak to your counselor in order to plan for your services going into the fall.

All the best,
Barry Fox-Quamme | ILR Executive Director
