The IMAGE Center of Maryland

Live Independently.

The IMAGE Center for people with disabilities is dedicated to new thinking about disability. Those of us with disabilities need an environment in which we can experiment and create – find new ways and new solutions. Whether it is a blind person learning to pour coffee or a person in a wheelchair trying to reach high cupboards, far too often, solutions go unexplored because we assume they don’t exist.

Maryland Universal Needs Assessment Survey

Maryland Centers for Independent Living (CILs) and the Maryland Statewide Independent Living Council (Maryland SILC) are excited to announce the launch of a critical survey aimed at shaping the future of independent living for people with disabilities across the state of Maryland.



The IMAGE Center serves several Maryland counties (see map below). We serve people with all disabilities. We are a nonresidential Center for Independent Living and our staff are primarily people with disabilities living independent lives and teaching these skills to others.
