Assist To Independence


To provide appropriate services such as peer mentoring, information and referral, advocacy, and independent living skills to enhance the quality of independent living in a culturally appropriate manner.


Independent Living Services means having the same choices and control in your daily life that people with no disabilities take for granted. This includes taking risks, taking responsibilities and having the same right to succeed or fail.
