Alfredo’s Success Story

Alfredo’s initial contact with Suncoast Center for Independent Living was via our Mobility Program in search of medical equipment. After receiving his medical equipment, he learned about the SCIL Transition Program. Alfredo expressed interest in the computer skills classes offered and set an appointment to talk to the Independent Living Coordinator about the program. It was discovered that he had an interest in computers but possessed very little knowledge and experience working with computers. He enrolled in a computer class in June 2013 and over the course of four months, Alfredo became a daily fixture in the computer lab. He has made considerable progress moving from computer novice to his current project, learning PowerPoint in order to make a presentation for his church’s holiday celebration. The strides Alfredo has made are truly inspiring. His next goal is to enroll in our GED prep course.


With all of our Services and Programs, written requests for accommodations, as required under the ADA, must be made within a minimum of  five days in advance to SCIL’s office.
