Support Mountain State Centers for Independent Living

The Foundation for Independent Living

In 1992, MTSTCIL created the Foundation for Independent Living as the fund raising arm of the center. This allows for more flexibility in raising money to support the centers' activities, since the Foundation is not funded with Federal funds.

The Foundation has since purchased the building at 821 Fourth Avenue in Huntington, WV, which houses the MTSTCIL corporate offices. The Foundation has been involved in a capital campaign to raise money for the renovations of the building. This is still an on-going project, with renovations being completed as funds are raised.

Money raised by the Foundation has also gone to purchase a new accessible van for both the Huntington and Beckley offices, as well as provide much needed repairs to the Beckley office.

The Freedom Fund

The Freedom Fund provides limited financial support to persons with disabilities wishing to leave, or to prevent them from going into, an institutional setting and to promote the independent living philosophy by offering guidance and support to persons with disabilities in maintaining themselves in their homes and communities providing funds are available.

I would like to make a donation online to the Freedom Fund. You can also write a check to:
