Our Mission

To ensure the rights of all persons with disabilities to live and function as independently as possible in the community of their choice, through supporting individuals' efforts to achieve control over their lives and become integrated into community life.

The Goal

Independent living is an individual's right to choose his/her own lifestyle in the community of his/her choice and to be ultimately responsible for that choice. The goal of Society's Assets is to offer a variety of services that can meet an individual's needs.

The Key to Independence Since 1974

Society's Assets is a nonprofit 501(c)3 Independent Living Center serving people of any age with any disability who live in Racine, Kenosha, Walworth, Rock, and Jefferson counties. Formed in Racine by people with disabilities, the name Society's Assets was chosen because the founders wanted to be seen as assets to society, as having abilities to contribute to the community. The organization is governed and operated by a board and staff comprised of a majority of people with disabilities. The agency supports individuals' efforts to achieve their potential and assists local communities in the removal of barriers to independent living.
