The IL Philosophy

Woman holding "Nothing About Us Without Us" sign Independent Living means control over one’s life based, on making choices that minimize reliance on others both in decisions and performing everyday activities. People, whatever their disability, living where they want, how they want, where they choose, and with who they choose. Self-determination and the minimization of psychological or physical dependence on others are key.



The Independent Living philosophy is one of consumer control, peer support, self-help, self-determination, equal access, and individual and system advocacy to maximize the leadership, empowerment, independence, and productivity of individuals with disabilities. Its goal is the integration and full inclusion of individuals with disabilities into the mainstream of American Society. It’s about asserting one’s rights and responsibilities as a first-class citizen.
