Is to provide and enhance opportunities for individuals with any disability to lead the fullest and most independent lives possible. We are inspired to make a better, happier place for individuals with disabilities in the ten county area we serve in Southeast Tennessee.
Any individual has the right and opportunity to follow a course decided by one's self and to succeed or fail in pursuit of one's goals and dreams. The IL philosophy promotes self-determination, equal opportunities, systems of individual advocacy, peer support, and self-help, along with self-respect.
Right now, we are in need of ramp-building volunteers. Groups and individuals over the age of 12 (with an adult present for minors) contact us if you are interested in volunteering in this way! You can forever change a life and feel good about doing so.

SPINAL MUSCULAR ATROPHY AWARENESS MONTH
Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month takes steps to find a cure a genetic disease affecting 1 in 11,000 births.
SMA (spinal muscular atrophy) damages motor nerve cells in the spinal cord. Those who suffer from SMA lose the ability to walk, eat and breathe without medical intervention.
Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month strives to raise awareness of the condition caused by the deficiency of a motor neuron protein called SMN and other rare forms of Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) that stem from chromosome mutations. Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month seeks to educate the public and generate support for those with SMA.
Spinal Muscular Atrophy is a motor neuron disease characterized by the “wasting away” of nerve cells, called motor neurons, in the spinal cord. Spinal muscular atrophy is the leading genetic cause of death in babies under the age of two. It affects families of all ethnic backgrounds, often with no prior history of the disease. In the U.S. one person in every six- to ten-thousand develops the disease. All levels of SMA require varying degrees of treatment.
