Mountain State Centers for Independent Living

Road sign to independent livingAn Independent Living Celebration of Global Proportions

We have been walking for independence since 2004. It rained, but that did not stop us. We continued walking until 2013 when we added a run. In 2014 we added a parade in Huntington and have had a Walk / Run / Parade ever since.

This year we are doing something different.

Our funding for direct services has been cut by $130,021. We have people who can't get in and out of their homes, waiting for services - some since 2014. This fundraiser is in progress and will continue until we reach our goal.

Make a donation!

We ask you to join us as we reach out to our friends near and across the globe and ask them to participate in fun-draisers, to volunteer services and to do what they can so that people with disabilities in West Virginia can live independently.

Advocacy is the core of our organization. We believe that by focusing on advocacy and teaching people with disabilities self-advocacy skills, our vision and mission can be achieved. Visit the Advocacy in Action section.

By raising the community's level of awareness about disabilities, our centers have the unique distinction of being both a resource for individuals and an advocacy organization in the community.
