ILO Community Group

For less than $17 a month your family member with developmental disabilities can join an inclusive community of like-minded individuals who want to lead full, rewarding, and independent lives.

The ILO Community Group is a unique, all ages, members-only group of families who have a loved one with an intellectual or developmental disability interested in transitioning to independent living.

The goal of the Community Group is for families to start growing their network of support to eventually join as a participating family.
