The Mission of NILP

The Northeast Independent Living Program, Inc. is a consumer controlled Independent Living Center providing advocacy and services to people with all disabilities who wish to live independently in the community.

Our Philosophy

Independent Living philosophy states that individuals with disabilities are the best determinants of their own needs and service choices. 

Through role modeling and peer counseling, with other individuals with disabilities, they become empowered to make changes in their lives and become more self-sufficient and self-reliant.
