About Independent Living

Independent Living, Inc. is a locally controlled, nonprofit agency operated by people with disabilities for people with disabilities offering a wide range of programs and services dedicated to ensuring universal access and opportunity in every aspect of community life. Since 1987, we’ve served as a common voice for persons with disabilities living in Orange, Dutchess, Ulster and Sullivan Counties.

Our efforts are directed to individuals of all ages having any disability, as well as to families, businesses, agencies, and municipalities. We are committed to the universal elimination of physical and attitudinal barriers, as well as assisting individuals with disabilities to successfully make the transition from system-dependency to independence.

For over 30 years, Independent Living, Inc. has touched the lives of literally thousands of people. Having a uniquely recipient-based perspective and approach to addressing disability issues, we have consistently exemplified cost-effective ways of improving the quality of lives of persons with disabilities. Every year, our Center provides a diversity of important resources to residents of our community.
