Contact Independent Living Independent Living Living independently a philosophy and a movement of people with disabilities who work for self-determination, equal opportunities and self-respect.
Independent Living means that we demand the same choices and control in our everyday lives that our non-disabled brothers and sisters, neighbors and friends take for granted. We want to grow up in our families, go to the neighborhood school, use the same bus as our neighbors, work in jobs that are in line with our education and abilities, start families of our own.
Just as everybody else, we need to be in charge of our lives, think and speak for ourselves.
To this end we need to support and learn from each other, organize ourselves and work for political changes that lead to the legal protection of our human and civil rights. People with disabilities must be empowered to take control over their own lives.
For more on the history of Independent Living: The way in which these services are delivered vary, but they speak to the core of the independent living philosophy in an effort to promote independence, dignity and self-determination for all: SAIL staff also work in each community on a variety of advocacy issues and spend time one-on-one developing plans for advocacy.
Whatever stage of life you are in, SAIL staff are prepared to promote your independence and inclusion into the setting and community of your choice! We are knowledgeable about community agencies and service providers and refer requests for services to the appropriate resources available in your community in an unbiased manner.
