ABOUT THE SMART SELF RELIANCE INITIATIVE

Empowering older adults and people with disabilities

OUR MISSION

Improve the independence of older adults and people with disabilities by facilitating their use of smart devices and services.

The Smart Self Reliance initiative is a collaboration between Illinois nonprofit organizations and universities to pursue research, development, education and outreach projects that advance the use of smart devices and services among these consumers. This website and the resources found here were made possible by the generous support of the Illinois Science & Energy Innovation Foundation, the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, Google and other independent and corporate foundations.
