Advocating for full integration, independence & civil rights of people with disabilities and seniors
The Regional Center for Independent Living (RCIL) assists people with all types of disabilities who want the opportunity to live independently and be active members of the community. Our core services include Information Referrals, Peer Support, Independent Living Skills Training, and Advocacy. We also offer specialty services that address a variety of needs including housing, accessibility, environmental modifications, benefits advisement, employment, and youth services.
If you are a person with a disability, care for someone who is, or want to learn how to make the community more accessible to all people, contact RCIL today. We look forward to helping you claim your independence.
