The Mission of AccessNorth (Center for Independent Living of Northeastern Minnesota) is to assist people with disabilities to live independently, pursue meaningful goals, and have the same opportunities and choices as all.

Independent Living Skills
Independent Living (I.L.) skills are the abilities used to function in the community and home. Employment, budgeting and money management, housing, transportation, etc. are all areas requiring I. L. skills. Persons with disabilities often do not have the opportunities to develop these necessary skills. To counteract this, CILNM offers a comprehensive independent living skills assessment and training program. Consumers desiring I.L. training can work with an I. L. Specialist to develop a goal plan customized to the consumer’s own needs.

Social Recreational Programs
We provide a variety of social and recreational activities near our main and branch offices.

Peer Program
The Peer program is a type of mentor program where we link people who have an new or newly diagnosed disability with a person who has had a similar disability for a longer period of time for support, helpful advice and friendship.

We advocate for changes in our state and national systems that will allow people with disabilities to live as they choose and have the supports to allow them to live as independently as they wish.
We advocate for individual people with disabilities in the schools, employment situations, with social programs, etc...

The Ramp Project
We offer home access ramps on a sliding fee scale for people who live in our service area.

Technology Program
We offer assistance in obtaining personal computers and other assistive technology to people enrolled in our programs.

Support and Fun Groups
We offer a variety of groups from craft classes, "finding joy" which is a depressive support group, disability specific support and education groups.

Nursing Home Relocation

Assistive Technology
