What are Centers for Independent Living (CIL's)?

We are private, not-for-profit organizations that work with people with all disabilities to advance their independence.

Welcome to CIL Opportunities!

What is a CIL?

Centers of Independent Living (CIL's) are private, not-for-profit organizations that work with people with all disabilities to advance their independence.

CIL's are not places where people live, instead they are centers of action and coalition.

Who is CIL Opportunities?

CIL Opportunities dedicates its mission to advocate for the rights of people with disabilities to achieve and maintain independent lifestyles.

Through promotion of choice, self-direction and inclusion, CIL Opportunities works with people with disabilities and their families to ensure the same freedoms and civil liberties as everyone else.
