Distance: 950 Miles
Environmental accessibility adaptations are physical adaptations to a person's home. These home accessibility modifications can make a home safer and help people function with greater independence.
Metropolitan Center for Independent Living (MCIL) is dedicated to the full promotion of the Independent Living (IL) philosophy by supporting individuals with disabilities to pursue self-directed lives. MCIL is consumer-directed - most of decision-making employees (80%) and members of the board of directors (90%) are individuals with disabilities.
The Independent Living (IL) model views people with disabilities as independent, fully part of the community and in control of their own lives.
All services offered by MCIL use this model, where the person with the disability makes decisions about the type of help that they want and need.
