The Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission's Community Living Services established the Turning 22 (T22) Independent Living Program in 1986 to design and implement transition services for young people who have a severe physical disability with a mobility impairment, and would like to live independently after high school graduation or turning 22. 

The program is based on the independent living philosophy that consumers are empowered to make their own decisions about their lives based on informed choice.  The T22 program works closely with staff of special education departments to coordinate services for students who will be graduating and needing MRC’s independent and supported living services.  For further information call (617) 204-3851 or (800) 223-2559

The T22 Independent Living Program provides funding for three major components: Supported Living (case coordination), the Transition to Adulthood Program and Ancillary Supports.
