Centers for Independent Living

CIL staff, boards, and consumers work together to remove barriers and prejudices in society so that all individuals can live and work and enjoy all that their communities have to offer. Fifty-one percent of the staff and boards of CILs are people with disabilities, which means that they play significant roles in the decision-making responsibilities of the Centers.
