About Us

ECNV staffThe ENDependence Center of Northern Virginia, Inc. (ECNV) is a community-based resource and advocacy center which is managed by and for people with disabilities.

ECNV promotes an independent living philosophy and equal access for all persons regardless of disability. We utilize consumer control and peer-to-peer relationships to empower people with physical, mental, cognitive and sensory disabilities to direct their own lives. Like 15 other centers for independent living in Virginia, and nearly 400 nationwide, ECNV grew from local disability rights and self-help movements.
