At Progress Center and Independent Living Radio we believe that information is power; that an informed person is always a person that is capable of knowing what their rights are, and where they can go.
One can find any information they seek relevant to disability. We could also refer them to other resources if needed, and if we do not have their information first-hand. Independent Living Radio is a program under the Progress Center umbrella, that seeks to go far with providing information on the current resources available for persons with disabilities in any part of the world. We also assist families and communities.
We find a way to directly or indirectly provide assistance to those with disabilities to help them establish their lives within the community. We service and support people with disabilities of any age, to acquire and maintain their Independence. Here at Progress Center and Independent Living Radio we say, ”We don’t Just prepare the fish so that they can eat it for a day. Here we teach the pperson how to fish so that he can eat for a lifetime.”
