Empowering people with disabilities to increase their independence through choice and opportunity.
We work with people of all ages — from children who might have a disability to senior citizens. We assist people who have a wide variety of disabilities, including physical, cognitive, visual, auditory and mental/emotional.
A Center for Independent Living is a nonprofit, community-based agency that provides five core services: advocacy, independent living, information and referral, peer consultation and transition.
Our program ensures people with disabilities are able to arrange and receive any personal care attendant services they need to live safely in the home setting of their choice, all backed by the experience and support of Paraquad.
With your help, Paraquad provides its expert services for people with disabilities at low or no cost to ensure that everyone who needs help can get it. More than 80 percent of our participants live on an income of less than $20,000.
From an accessible health and wellness center to interpreter services, we will help you find a solution.

I’ve been providing information and referrals to people with disabilities, family members, social workers and others, for 15-plus years now. I never really thought about how powerful the right information can be until I started this job.
With the holidays approaching, especially Thanksgiving, we are encouraged to reflect upon that for which we are grateful. Thankfulness doesn’t have to be associated solely with Turkey Day, does it?
At Paraquad, we are often asked how people with disabilities adapt and do things differently to accomplish everyday tasks independently or with assistance. The Lens of Ability hopes to answer those questions through first-hand accounts of people living with a disability.
