Center for Independent Living provides information about community resources that are available to people with disabilities. We provide information and referrals (I&R) directly to people with disabilities, and we provide information and referrals to other interested people such as family members, friends, employers, and service providers.

We provide disability-related information and referrals about:

A wide variety of other disability-related issues

If you have a question about a particular disability, disability generally, community resources available to people with disabilities, or local service providers that work with people with disabilities then it is likely that one of CIL’s I&R Specialists can give you the information that you seek.
