Western New York Independent Living, Inc.

The WNYIL family of agencies are joined by a common philosophy of self-help, self-determination, and equal access in order to empower people with disabilities to maximize their leadership, productivity, and integration into mainstream American society.The independent living philosophy can be expressed in three words:

  • Education – To build understanding
  • Empowerment – So people with disabilities can take control of their lives
  • Equality – To be equal and full partners in the community

Those three words are the keys to change, independence, and the fulfillment of human potential
