ILRCSF’s approach to service delivery reflects the Independent Living (IL) philosophy. Implicit in our consumer driven services is an expectation of consumer ability. Our staff, over 90% of whom are people with disabilities, operate under the premise that persons with disabilities are experts on their own needs, and must therefore take the lead in collaborating with staff to identify needs, options and the strategies necessary to achieve the most beneficial outcome.
The Independent Living Resource Center San Francisco is committed to and operates according to the Independent Living Philosophy, which states that people with disabilities are the most qualified and best suited experts regarding their own needs, and that a true Independent Living Center must revolve around peer support and leadership. In keeping with this philosophy, ILRCSF’s bylaws state that no less that 51% of our Board members be people with disabilities.
