Welcome To Independent Living Resource Center (ILRC)

Independent Living Resource Center (ILRC) is a grassroots, community agency founded in 1989 to encourage and empower individuals with disabilities to participate fully in family, community, and work life. We provide advocacy and services to people with all disabilities in 16 New Mexico counties.

As a consumer-controlled organization, people with disabilities comprise the majority of both our Board of Directors and our staff. ILRC is one of five Centers for Independent Living in New Mexico. Independent living philosophy promotes the full inclusion and participation of people with disabilities in work, family, and community life. A commitment to dignity, freedom, and choice for people with disabilities drives the delivery of independent living services, programs, and activities.
