About ILR Independent Living Resources (ILR) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people with all disabilities. The agency provides services using both staff and volunteers. Independent Living Resources took up its role in the community in 1957. In the early days the agency manually transcribed and duplicated Braille textbooks. Over the years, ILR expanded its services to people with all disabilities. Activities such as orientation and mobility, peer counseling, recreation, and skills training were there for the asking. Throughout the many years of change, a common thread has been our non-profit status and our perseverance in helping people. By offering the core services of Advocacy, Information and Referral, Peer Counseling, and Skills Training, Independent Living Resources continues to help over 3000 people annually. Mission Statement of Independent Living Resources: To promote the philosophy of Independent Living by creating opportunities, encouraging choices, advancing equal access, and furthering the level of independence for all people with disabilities.
