We assist people of all ages and disabilities on their path to lifelong independence.


We believe all people deserve to live as independently as they choose within their communities.


Our work will be guided by our beliefs and commitment to:

Community:we endeavor to educate community members to better support our purpose.

we empower people to acquire the knowledge, tools, and information needed to experience a life of independence and self-will.

we build on our accomplishments to continuously exceed expectations, and are committed to quality.

Inclusiveness: we respect people and value diversity.

we conduct ourselves with the highest standards of professional behavior while staying transparent, honest, and ethical in all interactions.

At Western Resources for Independent Living we believe people with disabilities and the elderly deserve to live as independently as they choose within their homes and communities and as a local, 501c3 Non-Profit, we have many different programs to help with independence.

We serve Butte, Custer, Fall River, Haakon, Harding, Hughes, Jackson, Jones, Lawrence, Lyman, Meade, Mellette, Pennington, Perkins, Stanley, Sully, and Tripp counties and have three office locations in South Dakota.  As an organization founded by people with disabilities, WRIL understands the challenges faced by people with disabilities. This motivates us to achieve immediate and long-term solutions.
