THE INDEPENDENT LIVING CENTER OF EASTERN INDIANA
Helping people with disabilities live as independently as they choose; and supporting those decisions once they are made.
The Independent Living Center of Eastern Indiana offers four core services:
Advocacy can happen two ways–individual and system.
With individual advocacy, we help persons with disabilities discover and navigate program options that may meet their individual needs.
With system advocacy, we work to improve community, state and national policies that affect persons with disabilities.
INFORMATION AND REFERRAL
The Center staff provides information and makes referrals to help consumers become more aware of their options and choices.
Important understanding about living with a disability comes from those who are disabled. Center staff helps to connect people with disabilities for peer support.
INDEPENDENT LIVING SKILLS
Living with a disability is filled with challenge. Often a different approach is necessary to manage activities that were routine once.
The Center provides training in life skills, orientation and mobility, as well as education about using adaptive devices, and introduction to new advances in assistive technology that can enhance independent living.
It is the mission of the Independent Living Center of Eastern Indiana to empower persons with disabilities.
