Five Core Services

Information and Referral: Providing basic information of available resources to assist individuals with disabilities to remain living as independently as possible.Information and Referral means giving information about services provided under the State's social services program and other service programs, both public and private; brief assessment to determine the most appropriate resource to meet the stated needs of the person requesting services; and referral to and follow-up with those community resources which provide or make available such services.  The purpose of a good information and referral program is to connect people with resources that can help them.


Individual and Systems Advocacy: The program supports both individual and community advocacy strategies that create positive change for persons with disabilities and their environment both on the state and national level.

The program provides basic information about advocacy to persons with disabilities and connects them to additional resources.

The program also provides direct advocacy for individuals at the community level; ensuring persons with disabilities are integrated into their communities successfully.


Independent Living Skills Training: Provides skills training to enhance the independence of adults with disabilities in their homes, families, and communities.

The program provides classes in cooking, assertiveness, relationships, financial management, adjustment to disability, and others as consumer needs dictate.

Persons with disabilities can also get help finding accessible housing, receive peer support, and work individually with staff. See the calendar of upcoming events for up-to-date IL Skills training and activities.

Nursing Home Diversion and Transition:

Transition from nursing homes and other institutions to community based residences; assisting individuals to avoid institutional placement; and transition of youth with significant disabilities after completion of secondary education to post-secondary life.

This program provides services to people living in nursing homes who want to move out into the community.
