Southwest Idaho's Center for Independent Living
Independent living is the idea that people with disabilities are the best experts on our own needs. That we have a valuable perspective to contribute and deserve equal opportunity to decide how to live, work, and take part in our communities. Independent living means having the opportunity and resources to live the life of our choosing.
Are you an Idahoan with a disability or older adult looking for in-home care? Do you want to set your own schedule and direct your own caregiver? Do you have a family member or friend who would like to be paid to provide your care? LINC is the premier agency providing self-directed home and community-based support services so that you can stay in your own home, in your own community, on your own terms.
