Independence Association produces and participates in several events to encourage community inclusivity for our consumers and their families. The events we produce are also aimed at raising awareness and funds for those we serve. We hold several types of events, some that are in house directly for our consumers and their families. Some are completely open to the community. For both we are always looking for help at all of our events. If interested check out our volunteer page.

Mentioned on our Out and About homepage, we partner with several local agencies and organizations to bring these events to fruition. By doing these events we continue to meet our mission as a resource to provide opportunities for all with developmental disabilities to participate as equals in their community.

Below is a list of some of the events we hold in the community.

We hope you will join us at one of them.
