Help support the FIL community

Since 1985, the Foundation for Independent Living has been helping individuals with disabilities grow, thrive, and become more independent. At FIL, our focus is on an individual’s abilities – building on the skills every individual has and supporting those areas where extra assistance is needed. Located in a community integrated setting in beautiful South Florida, FIL’s Residential Support activities, Enrichment Program, Employment Services and Health and Wellness activities are designed to strengthen each residents physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. At FIL our singular goal is to ensure every individual is able to reach their maximum level of independence.
