A little about us...
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.
“I am so thrilled for this exciting partnership between The Able Trust and the Independent Living Resource Center that will change lives here in the Jacksonville area,” said State Senator Aaron Bean. “Both of these excellent organizations are doing so much to create employment opportunities for Floridians with disabilities, and I can’t wait to see what can be accomplished with this grant.”
