Introducing the Inglis Innovation Center - the new home of Inglis' Community Support Services

(Closed Captioning, coming soon!)

During the last 140+ years, Inglis has developed relationships with individuals who have disabilities and built programs and services that enable them to overcome challenges and live life to the fullest. With advances in technology, medical care, and supportive services, more people than ever are choosing to live the lives they want, independently in the community.
