Independent Living Resource Center San Francisco (ILRCSF) is a disability rights advocacy and support organization. Our mission is to ensure that people with disabilities are full social and economic partners, within their families and within a fully accessible community. ILRCSF’s mission is achieved by systems change, community education, partnerships with business, community organizations and government, and consumer directed services. We work to empower individuals and community, so that all people with disabilities have as full, productive and independent lives as they so choose.
ILRCSF provides three services to the disability community: information, support, and advocacy. Specifically ILRCSF programs and services include Information & Referrals services, Assistive Technology education and support, Peer Counseling, System Change Advocacy, Housing Counseling, Benefits & Employment Planning, Individual Advocacy, Benefits Eligibility, Transitioning from Institutional Living, and Self Advocacy Training.
We welcome people with any disability, and are welcoming to individuals of any religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, etc. We invite you to visit us, to see the artwork on our office walls, hear the languages we speak and the music at our agency parties. We celebrate diversity, encourage empowerment and promote equal access for everyone. We view this work not as a task but a gift, one we are happy to share with all who see value in our beliefs and commitment to empowerment for all.
