Our Mission: To empower all people with a disability to live independent, self-empowered lives.
Our Vision: Full opportunity for all through self-empowerment, self-determination and equal access.
The ILRC has empowered the Northeast Florida disability community since 1978. Our agency is part
of a national network of over 400 Centers for Independent Living. The ILRC is consumer driven and
flexes to the needs of people with disabilities living in our community.
Each person with a disability has unique goals for independence. Our staff empower each person to
achieve their goals by developing and monitoring individualized Independent Living Plans. Programs
include advocacy, benefits screenings, education, employment, equipment loan, information and
referral, independent living skills training, peer mentoring, and sign language interpretation.
