    Welcome to IEC's Website

    Independence Empowerment Center, Inc. (IEC) is a community-based, non-profit, non-residential service and advocacy organization operated by and for people with disabilities in the state of Virginia. Our service area covers Prince William and Fauquier Counties, as well as the cities of Manassas and Manassas Park.

    IEC is a fully registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was founded in 1999. IEC promotes disability rights, equal access, and full community participation for persons with disabilities. We work with individuals with disabilities to maintain or take back charge of their own lives and make their own choices and decisions in order to be as self-sufficient as possible. With our consumers' assistance, we lead efforts to break down barriers and prejudices within our communities. When these barriers are removed and prejudices are replaced with positive attitudes, persons with disabilities will have equal access to society. Independence Empowerment Center is associated with a national movement of almost 500 Centers for Independent Living. These Centers are advocacy-based organizations governed and operated by persons with disabilities for persons with disabilities.
