Helping Young Adults with Developmental Disabilities Transition to Independent Living

Integrated Living Opportunities (ILO) is a non-profit organization serving members in the Washington, D.C./Maryland area. ILO is a coalition made up of:

  • Self-Advocates*
  • Participating Families
  • ILO Community Group Families
  • ILO Staff, Executive Director and Board of Directors

Together we create supportive communities of peers and caring people who help self-advocates transition to independent living.

Our goal is the utmost independence and self-reliance possible, with a safe network of support when it’s needed.

*A term that respectfully reflects the abilities and rights of those with developmental disabilities to make choices.
