Who We Are

BFL-history1Barrier Free Living (BFL) began its ground-breaking work with people with disabilities in 1978 as a Federally-funded Research and Demonstration Project first known as “Project Outward Bound”.

Since then, BFL has gone on to work with thousands of people with disabilities, has launched several successful award winning programs and has become a leader in working with survivors of domestic violence with disabilities.

In 2021, BFL celebrates 40 years as agency. We are launching a new Free media campaign as well as hosting a number of workshops and events for supporters and the people we serve.
