What’s in a name?
Independence; Merriam-Webster defines this in part as follows:
Not dependent: as 1) : not requiring or relying on something else : not contingent (2) : not requiring or relying on others (as for care or livelihood)
Incorporate is defined by Merriam-Webster in part as follows:

In the work that we do, we often end up combining (incorporating) appropriate programs and services that facilitate the independence of the clients we serve. Thus the name, Independence Incorporated.
