ILCSEMO would like to congratulate Jennifer Brown.  Our board of directors, during the most recently scheduled board meeting, voted to officially make Jennifer our Executive Director.   After over 13 years of dedicated service to ILCSEMO, and working almost every position the Center has to offer, including Assistant Executive Director, the board was able to vote unanimously, and with great certainty to place Jennifer into this position.  Jennifer is extremely excited for the opportunity that ILCSEMO will provide her to be able to continue to serve the area.  Jennifer has been a long time advocate for the disabled community and through not only her experiences with area consumers that she has been able to work with personally but also through her own personal disabilities she feels that she has much to offer ILCSEMO in the future.  Jennifer, being a highly motivated and ambitious person hopes to bring further growth to ILCSEMO and help to expand the Centers outreach into the community.  Jennifer is a strong and compassionate leader, both traits that will serve her well as the new leader at ILCSEMO.  So congratulations and may the odds be ever in your favor.



Please note that the Center Calendar of events now represents a 3 month time period.

Mission Statement:

To make Southeast Missouri barrier free for all persons with disabilities, enabling them to live more independently, extending their rights to control and direct their own lives and empowering them to live more productive lives.  To this end, we do not do things for the persons with disabilities; we enable them to do for themselves.



ILCSEMO offers various services to persons with disabilities with the goal of active participation in society focusing on the ABILITY of the person rather than the disability. ILCSEMO is consumer driven meaning the consumer decides his or her plan.   Independent Living Centers offer five core services upon which all of the programs are based.  These five core services are:
