We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to live as independently as they are able.

True community integration and high-quality individualized supports are the key differentiators between the services offered through ILE and those offered within a typical group or residential service model. We believe that our clients, with assistance from their circle of support, should be empowered to choose where, how, and with whom they want to live. This freedom of choice allows each client to become an integrated part of their community, while being indistinguishable from other community members.
