Disability Network of Mid-Michigan's mission is to promote and encourage independence for all people with disabilities.
At Disability Network, we believe it is not a disability that prevents people from participating in our communities, it is the barriers the community places in front of them. Disability Network exists to support the determination of individuals with disabilities to lead dignified, independent lives, and to heighten community awareness of those physical and social barriers which restrict independence.
We believe in the Independent Living Philosophy which postulates that people with disabilities are the best experts on their own needs.
What We Do
As a Center for Independent Living (CIL) we provide assistance to people with disabilities in five core service areas: Independent Living Skill Development, Peer Support & Mentoring, Nursing Facility Transitions, Information & Referral, and Advocacy at the individual and systems levels.
Our focus is providing the necessary and requested supports for individuals to obtain and maintain the level of independent living the person desires.
