Programs & Services

Through our Access to Independence program, our staff works towards setting and achieving goals that will alleviate the stressful conditions in which our consumers live. The result: People lead more productive and self-directed lives with increased dignity, quality of life and independence at home and in society.

Our services are provided free of charge, with the exception of our low-cost “Rental Closet” durable medical equipment rental program. Assistance takes many forms, but our focus on people with disabilities, providing peer support, developing self-advocacy skills and ensuring consumer-control in the decision-making process are a combination not found in other human services programs in our area.
