TRPIL affirms liberty and justice for all people with disabilities.

Programs and Services

  • Transitional Paths to Independent Living is nationally renowned for the numerous programs it undertakes for the sake of its consumers’ independence. The largest of these is the in-home care program, which pairs a trained attendant with a consumer who may require assistance getting out of bed, preparing meals, or getting to work. TRPIL also offers numerous services such as Independent Living Skills Training, Peer Support, Advocacy, and Transitions (from home to school or from a nursing home).
  • Nikki of Washington is 35 and lives with multiple disabilities, including blindness. The self-advocacy skills and peer support she accesses through Transitional Paths to Independent Living staff have taught her the means to advance herself. In addition, Nikki is working with TRPIL to find assistive technology solutions to assist in increasing her productivity. Nikki is proud to be collecting a paycheck through a job she loves!
  • TRPIL can solve many accessibility problems encountered by people with disabilities through home modifications. Mark is 16 years old and has been diagnosed with Downs syndrome, Autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. TRPIL was contacted by Mark’s mother requesting assistance to modify a bathroom located on the second floor. TRPIL replaced the tub with a roll-in shower, and the team added a stair lift for safe travel between floors. He now enjoys showering thanks to the new features!
  • TRPIL’s assistive technology program offers a consumer to borrow a piece of equipment from the lending library to see if it would fit their lifestyle. In the event that the piece of technology makes a positive difference, our team is able to determine the most affordable avenue for purchase. This program has provided a motorized wheelchair for 9-year old Maddie after she outgrew her old one. Such items available for testing are telephones, keyboards, eating utensils, and more.
  • Currently, TRPIL is in a Capital Campaign to renovate the former YWCA building, 42 West Maiden Street, Washington, PA. This building is being transformed into a new accessible headquarters and community center that, while serving people with disabilities, will be open to all for public use. Currently the construction is creating a direct care worker training center for the attendants who go to people’s homes. It also includes installing an elevator system and building a larger meeting space.
