ICS works with members to address their health, mobility and independence. These areas are the foundational pillars needed to stand up true health equity for people with disabilities.

HEALTH

ICS works to remove barriers to care that are all too common for people with disabilities, so each ICS member is able to enjoy the best possible health.

“Joining ICS was the best thing I could have done. If there were no ICS, my life would change because it’s as if I live here! The people at ICS are like family.”
