We provide resources and information to help educate the community, caregivers, and physically disabled persons that help people with physical impairments improve their quality of life at home, at work, and in the community.
Our programs help persons with disabilities improve their quality of life through health and wellness, education and economic empowerment. Our current programs include adaptive wellness classes, self-defense classes, financial grants, and advocating for affordable, accessible housing.
We work with community organizations and large companies to improve the quality of life for persons with disabilities, educate the community, build networks among persons with disabilities and develop relationships to grow our programs and resources.
Disability impacts all of us. 61 million adults are living with some type of impairment, ranging from mobility, cognitive, or sensory disabilities, that impact their quality of life.
One in three adults with disabilities age 18 to 44 do not have a health care provider or access to accessible wellness support. This puts them at higher risk for obesity, and other health issues such as heart disease and diabetes.
Disability is especially common among older adults, women and minorities. 1 in 4 women and 2 in 5 non-Hispanic American Indians / Alaska Natives have a disability. These segments are growing and only further increase the need to improve accessibility and care.
Independence Now is a nonprofit organization designed, governed and staffed by people with disabilities. We are part of a nationwide network of Centers for Independent Living providing the following core services: Information and Referral; Advocacy; Peer Support; and Independent Living Skills training.
Independence Now is a resource and advocacy center that promotes independent living and equal access for people of all ages with all types of disabilities residing in Montgomery and Prince George's Counties. They advocate and embody independence and equality for all people with disabilities. Their vision is that people with disabilities live independent and fully inclusive lives and are recognized by society as equal.
Having a bad day takes on a different meaning for people with spinal cord injuries. Our "bad days" could be mental, physical, or emotional situations that immediately cause feelings of depression, fear, or anxiety. So what do you do when you have a bad day?
This year, Disability Partnerships will hold its first-ever series of events for spinal cord injury awareness month. Spinal cord injury awareness month is in September.
Accessible homes ensure that those who need them have the ability to function as independently as possible. But what makes a home accessible?
Independence Now continuously offers its own events and talks and highlights others events in the area and of interest to the community. Check out their website to Learn More about their Upcoming Events.
