Senior Blind Assistance (55+)
Increasing your independence and self-sufficiency through adaptive equipment, training, support, and advocacy.
Children and young adults with disabilities are often segregated from their peers, causing difficulties as they grow and try to be part of their communities. This program seeks to:
- Increase participation in integrated settings and break the cycle of social exclusion
- Provide educational advocacy to help students be successful in school
- Offer group networking opportunities to develop positive peer relationships
- Provide parent/youth training activities to help individuals successfully transition into adulthood
Adaptive Equipment Services
The League’s Adaptive Equipment Program helps people with disabilities learn about and acquire the specialized equipment they need to be more independent and self-sufficient.
Information & Referral Services
This program is working to improve access to information and referral services for people with disabilities and the community at large, regardless of age, disability, or where they live.
Peer support is a core service of Centers for Independent Living. All of the services provided by The League offer peer support, either from the personal experiences of our staff members with disabilities, or by putting our consumers in touch with support groups or someone who has a disability.
Our advocacy efforts are focused on helping individuals, communities, and systems change for the better to allow full access and inclusion for everyone. We help individuals with disabilities deal with difficult personal issues, teach them to advocate and become engaged in their communities, and work to influence laws and policies at all levels.
Independent Living Skills Training
This program helps you gain the personal living skills needed to remain in your home and community setting by:
- Assisting you in transitioning and staying out of institutions
- Teaching you new skills for performing personal and household tasks
- Educating you on knowing your rights and advocating for yourself
Case coordination is a process that involves assessments, planning, implementation, coordination, monitoring and evaluation to meet the needs of the people with disabilities we serve. Our goal is to see the people we serve become successfully independent and self-reliant so they can safely stay in their homes and communities.
