Independent living means having control over our own lives. We believe people with disabilities are entitled to equal rights and opportunity, real choices that enable us to maintain control over our lives, power and authority over the supports and services designed to assist us, and full participation in our communities.

MISSION STATEMENT
"Empower individuals with disabilities to make choices through education, collaboration and advocacy."

INDEPENDENT LIVING GOALS
As peer mentors, we offer one-on-one assistance to individuals with all types of disabilities in working toward self-identified independent living goals.

Together, we identify obstacles to independent living and possible solutions. Then we work as partners to break down these barriers. Our goal is to assist you in becoming empowered - learning how to find necessary information, secure needed services, and advocate for your rights.

Established in 2002, DEC is a private, nonprofit, nonresidential organization run by and for people with disabilities. We dedicate our efforts to attaining equal opportunity and full participation of people with diverse disabilities in all aspects of life in our community. Through all of our individual and collective efforts, we work to eliminate barriers, ensure access, protect civil rights, and effect positive social change.

DEC provides FREE and CONFIDENTIAL services that prioritize self-determination, consumer control, and personal choice to individuals of all ages and with all types of disabilities.
