Welcome to the IMAGE Center of Maryland
The IMAGE Center for People with Disabilities is a center dedicated to new thinking about disability. Those of us with disabilities need an environment in which we can experiment and create - finding new ways and new solutions to what have seemed insurmountable problems. Whether it is a blind person learning to pour coffee or a person in a wheelchair trying to reach high cupboards, far too often, solutions go unexplored because we assume they don't exist.
Here at the IMAGE Center we are dedicated to the creation of a learning and thinking environment that challenges concepts of what people with disabilities can do. We see the potential for people to become full contributing partners in their families, on the job and in the community. The more full contributors we empower, the sooner disability is seen as a normal part of life - challenging, manageable, possible.
The Baltimore County Commission on Disabilities Housing work-group Report is an excellent resource of currently available options and recommendations for improvements.
