Independent Living Services

DORS operates the Independent Living Older Blind Program (ILOB). ILOB helps individuals who are 55 or older who are also blind or have a vision impairment to live independently in their homes and communities.

If you are not eligible for ILOB, and you have a disability but your goal is not to go to work, independent living (IL) services provided by a Center for Independent Living may be right for you. IL services are for individuals with disabilities who want to be more independent at home and in the community.

For more information about IL services, contact the Maryland Statewide Independent Living Council
