OUR PROGRAMS AND SERVICES

EMPOWER SELF-DETERMINATION, SELF-EMPOWERMENT AND EQUAL ACCESS

The Independent Living Resource Center of Northeast Florida is a Center for Independent Living. Since 1978, the ILRC has empowered people with disabilities to live independent, self-empowered lives. Each person who walks into our office, receives the services they need to set and achieve their goals for independence. We believe in a life of self-determination, self-empowerment and equal access.

Access

empowerment through access

Unnecessary barriers prevent the equal access to daily living for people with disabilities. We advocate for the right to equally access school, work and recreational activities.

Education

empowerment through education

34% of people with disabilities have only a high school diploma. We empower our next generation through career focused mentoring, enrichment activities and independent living skills trainings.

Employment

empowerment through employment

The unemployment rate for people with disabilities is twice that of their non-disabled peers. We empower employment through readiness, placement and retention services for both job seeker and employer.
