About Independent Resources

Independent Resources, Inc. (IRI) is a Center for Independent Living. Its mission is to assist persons with disabilities to achieve and maintain an individual lifestyle. IRI believes in personal empowerment, independence and community education.

IRI's services include Advocacy, Information and Referral, Peer Counseling/Peer Support, Entrepreneurship, and Independent Living Skills Training. In addition to these mandated programs, IRI offers the Community Works Partnership, a nursing home transition program, a computer-training program for the blind, and services geared for the deaf and hard of hearing.

WHYY-TV's "First" featured IRI and the Disability Ball
in a show which aired in January 2018.

All services provided by Independent Resources are free. They are designed to help individuals acquire the necessary skills to enable them to obtain the independent lifestyle of their choosing.

More than 50 percent of IRI’s employees, as well as the Board of Directors, are themselves persons with disabilities who live independently in the community.

The counsel and support of the staff, based on their own life experiences, is a unique benefit for disabled individuals.
