Alvord-Taylor Independent Living Services has been assisting people with disabilities to live quality lives in their communities since 1974. We serve over 60 people with disabilities in the Eugene-Springfield area. Our main areas of focus are facilitating independence and building personal opportunity. We believe in genuine community involvement for the people we support and increasing community awareness of their abilities.
Alvord-Taylor depends on individual donor support as well as government contracts to fund our programs. We rely on community support to ensure that access to activities and events is available to all the people we support. We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit and all donations, both money and in-kind, are tax deductible.
Alvord-Taylor only accepts referrals from Lane County Community Development Disability Program (CDDP). Lane County CDDP uses defined eligibility standards based on developmental disability status and makes referral decisions based on those standards. Alvord-Taylor does not discriminate against anyone. We will not deny help to anyone based on age, race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, religion, political beliefs or disability.
Our screening criteria consider only each tenant’s individual behavioral and medical needs and Alvord-Taylor’s current ability to meet those needs. Except in cases where a tenant exceeds State of Oregon-mandated maximum income levels, rejection of a referred tenant occurs only if, due to expense, staffing, current tenancy or facility restrictions, Alvord-Taylor is unable to make accommodations that will support that tenant’s health and well-being.
If you or someone you care about is in need of support, please contact the Lane County Community Development Disability Program to view eligibility requirements and apply.
