OUR VISION FOR INDEPENDENCE

Avenues to Independence is dedicated to putting aside old ideas about what is possible.

We work in partnership with the community to support and encourage people with disabilities to lead the lives they choose.  Our success will eventually be measured by how little we are needed.

WE HELP PEOPLE WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES
LIVE THE LIVES THEY CHOOSE.


At Avenues to Independence, we provide homes, jobs, and social opportunities to hundreds of adults with autism, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome and other physical, intellectual and/or developmental disabilities so they can live and work in the community with independence and dignity.
