Our mission is to work with people of all abilities to create a fair and just community in which everyone can fully participate.

As an Independent Living Center (ILC), ARISE promotes the full inclusion of people with disabilities in the community. Like all ILCs, ARISE has five key characteristics. The agency is consumer-controlled, community-based, non-residential, non-profit, and cross-disability focused.

ARISE is dedicated to furthering the independent living philosophy: the belief that people with disabilities have the same rights as people who do not have disabilities. We are at the forefront of advocating for access, choice, and self-determination for individuals with disabilities.
