Living Well, Independently.

Living well means embracing concepts like self-determination, choice, integration, freedom from barriers, and dignity of risk. It’s having the same opportunity as a person without a disability to pursue one’s own destiny. Only you know what you want to do with your life. Tell us what’s important to you and we can provide support along the way.

TRPIL already provides customized services to hundreds throughout Western PA. As a Center for Independent Living, TRPIL facilitates all the above while acting as a community center, offering empowering and fun activities, upon remodel.

Services Overview

ADVOCACY

TRPIL’s dedicated Advocacy program focuses on 3 different types of advocacy that someone with a disability may need to rely on– individual, self, and systems-advocacy. 

 

Transition Services

Disability can have a real impact on your ever-changing day-to-day needs. TRPIL has services that help you transition through all different stages of life.

Peer Support

Peer Support allows people with disabilities to encourage one another to set and achieve goals for themselves. The philosophy is that people with disabilities understand one another’s struggles best when we relate to each other as peers.

INDEPENDENT LIVING SKILLS TRAINING

Independent Living Skills Training is a unique service tailored to each person, in which an individual can work toward learning a new skill with the guidance of a TRPIL staff member, who also has a disability.

INFORMATION & REFERRAL

TRPIL connects people with disabilities and their families with information, resources, and service agencies. Every person’s needs and situations are different.

HEALTH & WELLNESS

Promoting self-awareness and self-knowledge as a means to a healthier lifestyle is a primary goal of TRPIL’s Health & Wellness program. Through mentoring, resources, and additional programs, we can help you learn more about healthier choices.

ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY

TRPIL is the local outreach partner of the statewide program known as Technology for Our Whole Lives, (TechOWL). As a partner, TRPIL’s Assistive Technology Resource Center (ATRC) serves 7 counties, providing support in the form of adaptive devices which allows for greater independence and accessibility.

EMPLOYMENT SERVICES

In the past, you or someone you know with disabilities may have been discouraged from seeking employment due to concerns over insurance coverage or complicated government programs. Contact TRPIL today to learn more about your options.
