January 15, 2016 was PILR’s 19th anniversary of serving Kansans with disabilities. We’ve come a long way since that cold snowy day when we had no consumers, no computers, not a lot of knowledge of what we were doing and a lot of passion for making a difference in the lives of people with disabilities. We’ve grown from serving 3 counties to 60 counties and from 6 staff to 19 staff, 3 SER workers and numerous volunteers. Plus, we have 3 offices located in Hutchinson, Pratt and Dodge City. Last fiscal year we served 587 people with disabilities as they achieved their Independent Living goals…what a difference 19 years makes!!!
