from the Executive Director

Jo Black

Hi, My name is Dani Anderson and I am the Executive Director of the Independent Living Resource Center (ILRC). We serve Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo Counties.


At the ILRC, we know every person who visits or calls us has their own reason and that is why we have an individualized approach to our services. Whether interested in finding information and referrals for accessible housing, transportation, or education; seeking assistive technology or assistance with the processes around benefit programs such as SSI, SSDI, Medi-Cal, and work incentives programs; or looking for an advocate, ILRC is equipped to provide these services and more.


Additionally, the ILRC is very involved in our communities and we are always looking at the “big picture” of disability rights and systems change. With a focus on accessibility and removing barriers, we advocate to create opportunities to achieve equality for individuals with disabilities.


Our web site is a useful tool for information and resources within community. I hope you find it helpful, educational, and motivational.


We are always working to improve the delivery of our services supporting you in your independent living goals. We strive to be a continued presence in a thriving disability community.
