Independence Residences Inc. Announces Affiliation with Queens Parent Resource Center (QPRC)
Date:1/16/2013

Woodhaven, NY (PRWEB) January 16, 2013

Joining forces can be the best way to move forward in a changing business climate and broaden the opportunity to offer the best care for those seeking support.

Independence Residences, Inc. (IRI), a not-for-profit human services agency that provides residential and community support to people with developmental disabilities and other visual impairments, has affiliated with the Queens Parent Resource Center (QPRC), a provider of similar services and programs for the developmentally disabled.

“We recognized that we have common missions and operational objectives and that by working together both organizations will benefit. QPRC has experience with supporting people who are medically frail and those that require wheelchairs, and we work with people with developmental disabilities such as Autism, Asperger's Syndrome and behavioral issues,” says DeNatale.

The affiliation, 18 months in the making, has been approved by both boards, and represents the Agencies working together as a first step toward a merger.

“We will develop a management services agreement that will dictate more formally what we will provide for them and what they will provide for us. The two organizations remain legally and fiscally separate,” says DeNatale.

Magalee added, “When comparing agencies, it is easy to cite areas of overlap in similar services. However, the most appealing aspect is in the distinct strengths wit
