Summary

Centers for Independent Living (CILs) help people with disabilities achieve or maintain more self-sufficient and productive lives in their communities. People with disabilities are assisted in exploring alternatives to institutionalization and are encouraged to make their own decisions about how they will live. CILs directly provide or coordinate through referral those services which assist people in increasing their abilities to exercise control over their lives. Control over one’s life means having a choice of acceptable options that minimize reliance on others in making decisions and performing every day activities. This includes managing one’s own affairs, participating in day-to-day community life and fulfilling a range of social roles.
