Testimonials Hear It From Our Consumers…
“For nearly a year, I had difficulties accessing services through In Home Supportive Services (IHSS). I was in need of additional service hours in order to live independently in my home. I reached out to RIL and my problem was resolved. I am happy to say that I am very proud of RIL and the services they provide to people with disabilities.”

“I was injured on my job and was unable to work. After my benefits ran out I could not pay my rent for three months. I was in the process of being evicted when an agency referred me to RIL. Through a transition grant, my back rent was paid and RIL prevented me from becoming homeless. I was recently offered and accepted a job to maintain my independence and to further avoid homelessness. I will forever be thankful for RIL and how they helped me.”
– RIL Consumer
“During a lengthy illness and death of my wife, my seven children and I lost our Housing Choice Voucher for the first time in 12 years. My wife always had the responsibility of maintaining our voucher, I turned to RIL. RIL assisted my family in order to reinstate our voucher. We would not have been able to make it without a voucher. RIL was a blessing and we are truly grateful for their services.”
