Helen A. Kellar Institute for Human disAbility - George Mason University
About Us

The Kellar Institute for Human DisAbilities (KIHd) is an interdisciplinary campus-based organization focusing on improving the lives and productivity of children and adults with disabilities. KIHd combines the resources of the university with local, state, regional, national, public, and private sector agencies and organizations to develop products, services, and programs for persons with disabilities.

Since the residential program builds on the foundation of independent living skills, a basic level of independence, self-sufficiency, and understanding of personal safety is expected for a student to be in the residential housing program.

The Mason LIFE Program has a robust staff of day and overnight support; however, there will be times when students are not supervised in their housing units.
