Peer Support & Self-Advocacy
Peer Support and Individual Advocacy at The Independence Center exist as a catalyst for gaining empowerment and forming a social network. We offer peer support groups, facilitated workshops, advocacy coaching, and individual mentoring; all of which are intended to help you achieve your goals. Support Groups at The IC are designed to be all-inclusive so that no matter what your disability, you should be able to find a group that will fit you well.
Examples of some of the Peer Support Groups at The IC:
- Family/Caregiver Encouragement
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Living Well With a Disability
- Men’s Group
- Women’s Group
In addition to support groups, we often offer recreational activities such as horseback riding, glow golf, and bowling. Workshops are also often facilitated with topics that consumers have suggested.
Examples of some of the facilitated workshops we’ve hosted are:
- Adaptive Yoga
- Adaptive Bicycling
- Understanding Insurance
