Statewide Coverage

Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services' (ADRS') seven independent living (IL) specialists are able to cover the whole state of Alabama, including large rural areas, through an entrepreneurial service provision approach. IL specialists leverage their fixed annual service provision budget by generating local donations of additional goods and services for their consumers. A total of $527,000 in donated goods and services were reported in FY 2006. Additionally, IL specialists promote the IL philosophy and promote awareness about IL issues and services through public appearances and relationship-building activities involving local community organizations, state agencies, hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, individual families and centers for independent living.
