Contact and Member Information

As a client-controlled organization, we are committed to having a membership which is at least 51% persons who have disabilities. For that reason, this space is provided should you choose to self-identify as having a disability.

Statement of Support

Independent Living is about having choices, making decisions, taking risks, and taking responsibility. Independent Living is about having control over one's own life.

Independence is not measured by the quality of tasks we can perform without support, but by the quality of life we can have with support.

Mission Statement

Empower is a client controlled organization committed to providing supports, resources and opportunities for empowerment, which enable persons with disabilities to make informed choices about their lives.
