About Us

A Welcome Letter from Christine

Welcome to the Independence Project! We’re glad you’re here!

We have been working in Charlotte the past several years to provide private-pay supports that yield positive, measurable outcomes for our participants and their families.

Our mission is to go beyond maintaining people and truly assist them in having fulfilled lives according to their own desires and abilities.

There is no failure; only opportunities for learning which we believe is a life-long process.

Give us a call if private pay is an option for your family. We can also certainly enhance the state-paid services your family member is already receiving.

We serve a lot of adults that fall through the cracks because they do not qualify based on state and federal criteria.

We can also fill a gap while going through the process for qualifying for state services which can be a lengthy process.

Helping people help themselves and helping people help each other is what we do! Give us a call and see how we can help you and your loved one!

Our services are provided in the home and community to promote full inclusion and community integration. We are an affordable alternative to traditional services that may not meet the needs of your family member.

Our mission is to assist individuals in gaining and sustaining the skills needed to live, work, and play in the communities in which they reside.

“You can depend on us to be there and do our best to provide support that yields meaningful outcomes and enhances the quality of lives.” - Christine
