About Independent Resources

Independent Resources, Inc. (IRI) was established more than 20 years ago in 1994 to provide services and support to persons with disabilities living in Delaware.

IRI is a Center for Independent Living, as defined by the Federal government. The center is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides services to persons with disabilities.

Specific services provided are 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.

All services provided by Independent Resources 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.
