MILP’s staff provides our consumers with information and training regarding individual civil rights and responsibilities regarding local, state and national issues. We also assist consumers in promoting and modeling these interests to others.
In addition, MILP staff and board members participate in local, state and national activities that promote the full inclusion of people with disabilities in all areas of daily living.
A person who has experienced a disability might be available to help in a private one-on-one setting to provide peer advice and support to another individual who is experiencing similar adjustment challenges.
All peer advocates are trained and supervised by MILP’s professional staff members.
MILP is a not-for-profit agency governed by a consumer-controlled Board of Directors whose lives have been personally impacted by a disability. It is funded in part by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended in 1992 (Title VII- Independent Living Services), and the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (Disability Services Division).
