Mid Ohio Board for an Independent Living Environment


Misson and activities:

MID-Ohio Board for an Indpendent Living Environment is a non-profit Center for Independent Living directed by persons with disabilities. MOBILE is located in Columbus Ohio where we have provided supportive service and assistance to the disability population of Franklin County for over 30 years.

MOBILE was founded by Beverly Rackett, Executive Director on principles that affirm the right of persons with disabilities to live their lives with a full measure of liberty and human dignity.

Our Mission

To work in partnership with persons with all types of disabilities as independent, active and valuable advocates within central Ohio.

To promote the importance of value of persons with disabilities as individuals, employees, and citizens within central Ohio

To be a driving force for the independent living movement within central Ohio through communicating the movement's value and necessity, educating the community at large, and facilitating government and business action.

To assist the public and private sectors in removing attitudinal, environmental, and architectural barriers in order to increase opportunities to all persons.

To ultimately eliminate the need for itself through full integration of persons with all types of disabilities into society

Our non governmental, non-profit, organization works at the local level.

We consider ourselves as part of the international Independent Living and Disability Rights Movement.

Our organization is mainly run, controlled and represented by disabled people.

We have expertise, or are interested in cooperating with other organizations, in the areas of:

Four Core Services
Independent Living Skills

Peer Support

In addition to our four core services we offer a range of supportive assistance to the disability community that promotes Full Inclusion and "Independent Living"
