The Northeast Independent Living Program, Inc. (NILP) is a consumer controlled, Independent Living Center that provides advocacy and services to all people with with disabilities who wish to live independently in the community in the 52 cities and towns that NILP serves in the Merrimack Valley region and Northeast Massachusetts. Independent Living philosophy states that individuals with disabilities are the best determinants of their own needs and service choices. Though role modeling and peer counseling with other people with disabilities, they become more empowered to make changes in their lives and become more self-sufficient and self-reliant. NILP is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that receives state and federal funding. *All services and programs provided by NILP are free with no fees required (*except for TLC, our education division for training and consulting purposes). We are "Peer2Peer Resources for People With Disabilities".
