    We encourage people with disabilities to explore all the tools and resources available to them so that they can make informed decisions and take ownership of their lives.


    As members of the disability community, we share our own experiences, pass along tips and tricks, and serve as role models and mentors for ILRCSF consumers.


    At ILRCSF, we empower consumers to advocate for their own needs, to educate themselves about disability policy, and to participate in civic engagement.

    Building community

    We are a group of professionals and volunteers, and almost all of us have disabilities ourselves. We are passionate about supporting and empowering other people with disabilities to lead meaningful, independent lives and to actively participate in their communities. We are not a training center. We work collaboratively with individuals to help them determine what services and programs are right for them. We provide information and referrals related to assistive technology, housing, employment, and eligibility for benefits, as well as free peer counseling. Above all, we are a disability rights advocacy organization, and we actively encourage consumers to join our efforts to advocate for the rights of all people with disabilities. Whether you are a person with a disability, a family member or loved one of a person with a disability, or a professional working with someone who has a disability, we hope that you will take the time to explore our site.  To get started, watch a brief video about ILRCSF programs and services.
