Independence is its own reward
The Center for Accessible Living is Kentucky’s first Independent Living Center. With offices located in Louisville and Murray, its services span the entire state of Kentucky. The Center for Accessible Living (CAL) is a private, non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization.
CAL is a disability rights and resource center for people with disabilities, governed by people with disabilities. Services are offered to individuals with all types of disabilities. Our experienced staff provides information, advocacy and services that create opportunities for people with disabilities to live as independently as possible.
The Center for Accessible Living is an innovative leader in empowering all people to achieve their goal of independent living while involving the entire community.
“Independent Living does not mean that we want to do everything by ourselves, do not need anybody or like to live in isolation. Independent Living means that we demand the same choices and control in our every-day lives that our non-disabled brothers and sisters, neighbors and friends take for granted. We want to grow up in our families, go to the neighborhood school, use the same bus as our neighbors; work in jobs that are in line with our education and interests, and raise families of our own. We are profoundly ordinary people sharing the same need to feel included, recognized and loved.”
- Dr. Adolf Ratzka
