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.

Description of Services

Our Mission
To ensure the rights of all persons with disabilities to live and function as independently as possible in the community of their choice, through supporting individuals' efforts to achieve control over their lives and become integrated into community life.
Our Goal
Independent living is an individual's right to choose his/her own lifestyle in the community of his/her choice and to be ultimately responsible for that choice. The goal of Society's Assets is to offer a variety of services that can meet an individual's needs.
The Key to Independence Since 1974
Society's Assets is a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit Independent Living Center serving people of any age with any disability who live in Racine, Kenosha, Walworth, Rock, and Jefferson counties. Formed in Racine by people with disabilities, the name Society's Assets was chosen because the founders wanted to be seen as assets to society, as having abilities to contribute to the community. The organization is governed and operated by a board and staff comprised of a majority of people with disabilities. The agency supports individuals' efforts to achieve their potential and assists local communities in the removal of barriers to independent living.
