Independent Living Resource Center, Inc.Donate
The mission of the Independent Living Resource Center, Inc. (ILRC) is to promote independent living and full access for individuals with disabilities through advocacy, education and action in our communities.
The Big Idea:
Being able to live at home as independently as possible is often contingent of Personal Care Assistance (PCA) for people with disabilities, whether temporary or permanent. This fund will allow those who do not qualify for government programs but cannot afford PCA Services to utilize them rather than be forced into a nursing facility.
I contacted ILRC because I needed help with housekeeping, laundry, meal preparation, minimal help with toileting and transportation to doctor appointments and errands. Those are obviously very important aspects of living independently. I am lucky to get In Home Support Services which pays for my PCA needs, without that I am not sure what I would have done.
