Empowering People With Disabilities & Promoting Independent Living
Do you you have a passion for making people’s lives better?
Become a positive force for the individuals we serve, our community, and each other.
At Voices for Independence, each person’s role is more than just a job. Everyone is a part of something bigger: providing an independent and supportive environment for the consumers we serve.
Living Well, Independently.
Living well means embracing concepts like self-determination, choice, integration, freedom from barriers, and dignity of risk. It’s having the same opportunity as a person without a disability to pursue one’s own destiny. Only you know what you want to do with your life. Tell us what’s important to you and we can provide support along the way. Voices for Independence already provides customized services to hundreds throughout Western PA. As a Center for Independent Living, Voices for Independence facilitates all the above while acting as a community center for empowering and fun activities.
One of the most challenging obstacles to independence is having a home that is truly accessible. Voices for Independence has certified, dedicated staff that work to ensure that your home is fully accessible, whether you’re in need of a wheelchair ramp, an accessible kitchen, a roll-in shower, and more. They also work within various programs statewide to confirm that you’re eligible, and they remain a part of the modification process from start to finish.
