WHAT IS THE
Center for Independent Living?

Center for Independent Living (CIL) provides advocacy and services that increase awareness, collaboration, and opportunity among people with disabilities and the community at large.

CIL's programs provide people with skills, knowledge, and resources that empower them to eliminate damaging and stereotypical notions of disability so that they can strive toward realizing their full human potential.
