What is a Center for Independent Living?

Centers for Independent Living (CILs) are non-residential, 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporations.  They are consumer-controlled, community-based organizations that provide programs and services for people with all types of disabilities and their families.  The goal of CILs is to promote and support opportunities for people with disabilities to fully participate in an integrated community and search for the possibilities to live as they choose. Because peer support is an integral part of Independent Living the majority of the staff and board of directors of every CIL  are people with disabilities.
