Welcome to Abilities in Motion

Abilities In Motion (AIM) is a non-profit Center for Independent Living.  Our purpose is to help individuals living with a disability determine, strive toward, and achieve a lifestyle that reflects their personal life goals. AIM serves over 3,000 individuals throughout Berks and in more than 30 surrounding counties throughout PA.

The Independent Living movement champions the principle that people with disabilities prefer to direct their own lives and become active participants in their community rather than live within an institution.

AIM is dedicated to advancing the rights of people with disabilities – to improve mobility, to improve access, to improve inclusion, and to improve quality of life.   We believe in preventing and eliminating obstacles of all kinds - physical, psychological, social, and attitudinal.  These barriers deny people living with disabilities the rights and privileges common to the general public.
