|Foundation for Independent Living|
serving West Virginians with disabilities
The Foundation for Independent Living is dedicated to supporting independent living for people with disabilities.
Independent living for people with disabilities is defined as: participating in day-to-day life, living where you choose and making decisions that lead to self-determination over all aspects of one's own life, including control over supports and services received.
Established in 1992 as the fund raising arm of Mountain State Centers for Independent Living, the Foundation for Independent Living is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.
The Foundation supports independent living through resource development and fundraising on behalf of Mountain State Centers for Independent Living. Learn more about Mountain State Centers for Independent Living.
Along with fundraising activities, the Foundation relies on grants and donations from individuals and businesses to fund and support our programs.
