State Independent Living Council

What is an Independent Living (IL) Center?
CILs are non-residential, private, non-profit, consumer-controlled, community-based organizations. They provide services and advocacy by and for persons with all types of disabilities. Their goal is to assist individuals with disabilities to achieve their maximum potential within their families and communities to achieve and maintain independent living.
Centers provide five core services required by federal statute:

  1. Information and Referral
  2. Individual and System Advocacy
  3. Peer Support
  4. IL skills instruction
  5. Transition services for youth and adults
