What We DO
AFIL Program Overview

The AFIL Program is a, twenty-four hour educational and residential program for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. All of the students are taught the same skills, although each student learns these skills at his or her own pace. The skills taught by the AFIL professional staff are broken in three segments.  Overview

The Association for Independent Living

The Association for Independent Living is a 501(c)(3) organization and operates in the Dallas area of North Texas. AFIL charges residents with room/board or rent, and parents/families pay tuition. Much of our funding is from the generous giving of individuals and foundations. If you wish to make a donation, note that it is tax deductible to the full extent of the law. AFIL welcomes donations at any time. Many employers will match the amount you donate to AFIL. Please check with your human resources department to see if your employer offers matching funds.   More Info
