Adolph Ratzka once said that independence “Means that we (people with disabilities) demand the same choices and control in our everyday lives that our non-disabled brothers and sisters, neighbors and friends take for granted.” Independent Living has many program areas and services that are provided to consumers. At the core of what we do is the idea of independence and that the best person to direct what services they utilize is the person living with their disability.

Colorado is overhauling past Telecom bills, and this may have a negative effect on certain communities. The package of bills, passed by the Senate committee, deregulates all telephone services and moves funding used for the maintenance of land lines to expand broadband in rural areas.
