Organization: ILC of Missouri, JoplinAbout:
The mission of The Independent Living Center is to increase the independence of people with disabilities. To achieve this mission in southwest Missouri, The Independent Living Center was founded in 1994 as a satellite office of the Springfield Center for Independent Living through the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA). A year later, TILC became a fully funded, independent center. TILC is "consumer driven" meaning that we believe the individual knows their needs better than anyone else and should be the responsible party in directing their own care and their own future.
