Who We Are
Living independently doesn’t look exactly the same for every individual, and we understand that.
Solutions for Independence is a resource center that offers an array of services and cross disability expertise in order to meet each of our consumer’s needs. Our goals are simply to encourage people to make good choices and exercise control over their own lives. Our hope is that those who come to us are able to expand access to information and resources, to increase their independence, and to improve the quality of their lives.
Solutions for Independence Staff works to alleviate barriers that keep people with disabilities from full participation in their community.
Working with both community partners and service providers, we provide awareness and education by promoting consumer choices.
Our staff provides technical assistance regarding compliance with the ADA building specifications on new construction or existing structures being remodeled or rehabilitated. This includes accessible parking requirements, ramp elevations, and entrance/exit widths, etc.
Information on Community resources, housing, assistive technology, adaptive equipment, Social Security, employment services, legislation, recreation and other disability related information is available. Referrals are made to appropriate community/provider agencies, equipment providers and financial resources.
Independent Living Skills Training is the development of daily living skills of people with disabilities. Consumers often come to us with the desire to develop or improve on a specific task that keeps them living independently and in their community.
