Welcome to Stone-Hayes

An individual uses assistive technology, the grip ball and pen
The Stone-Hayes Center for Independent Living provides services to people with disabilities, their families and friends, and the greater Galesburg, Illinois, community. 

Our cornerstone is our commitment to the independence of all people -- regardless of type or severity of disability -- and the right of choice and control by each individual.

This philosophy, called independent living, sets the stage for:
  • universal accessible design in our community
  • understanding of and respect for people with disabilities
  • inclusion and equality of opportunity and options for lifestyles at home, work, and in the community

We promote an equal playing field in life activities, not special privilege and entitlement. Learn more!
