The Independence Center information provided by: Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments

The Independence Center is a local nonprofit organization that provides traditional and self-directed home health care, independent living, and advocacy services for people with disabilities. These services range from providing peer support, skills classes, and employment assistance to individuals, and advocacy to affect change within and outside the disabilities system. The IC’s mission is to work with people with disabilities, their families, and the community to create independence so all may thrive. Our programs are designed to provide information, support, and encouragement to people with disabilities in El Paso, Cheyenne, Kit Carson, Lincoln, Park and Teller counties.
• The Veteran in Charge program is a Veteran-Directed Home and Community Based Services (VD-HCBS) Program that allows Veterans to remain in their home and community. This program is funded by the VA.
• Our Home Health agency provides for skilled medical care and personal care support that enable people with disabilities to live and thrive where they are most comfortable – at home, instead of nursing care or rehabilitation facilities.
• The Center for Independent Living provides information, coaching, and assistance for people to create the life they want, and provides training and support to accomplish their goals.
• Our Advocacy programs assist individuals and the community in identifying and addressing barriers to independence in the lives of people with disabilities. This is achieved in several ways, including self-advocacy mentoring, community organizing, issue briefs, emergency preparedness, and lobbying to affect change locally and statewide.
