“Nothing About Us Without Us!”
This slogan is used to communicate the idea that no policy should be decided by any representative without the full and direct participation of members of the group(s) affected by that policy. This involves national, ethnic, disability-based, or other groups that are often thought to be marginalized from political, social, and economic opportunities.
HASL Center for Independent Living advocates for the independence, self-sufficiency, and dignity of all people regardless of their age or abilities. We believe in the adaptive, resilient nature of human beings. HASL strives to help consumers live as independently as they wish with self-determination and free choice. Our work empowers consumers to contribute to their communities on a level that makes sense to them. Our services allow consumers to pursue meaningful careers and enjoy full inclusion and integration in the economic, political, cultural, and educational aspects of our Rogue Valley community.
