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.
