Massachusetts has 10 Centers for Independent Living, which together serve all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. The last year has been challenging. Independent Living Centers have risen to that challenge, continuing to provide services, advocate for access and challenge disparities.

The Independent Living Movement is founded in the belief that people with disabilities, regardless of the form, have a common history and a shared struggle, that we are a community and a culture that will advance further banded together politically.

The first Center for Independent Living was founded by disability activists in California in 1972. There are now 403 Centers across the United States, providing Peer Support , Information and Referral , Individual and Systems Advocacy , Independent Living Skills Training and Transition.
