Center for Independent Living
Independence Empowerment Center
Who We Are
Independence Empowerment Center provides four basic core services to persons with disabilities: peer counseling, independent living skills training, information and referral and advocacy. Other services can include community education, technical assistance, Personal Assistance Services (PAS), support groups, Adaptive equipment, deaf outreach services, community education and more.
Centers for Independent Living, often referred to as "CILs", are non-residential places of action and coalition, where persons with disabilities learn empowerment and develop the skills necessary to make lifestyle choices. Centers provide services and advocacy to promote the leadership, independence, and productivity of people with disabilities. Centers work with both individuals as well as with the local communities to remove barriers to independence and ensuring equality of persons with disabilities.
Individual staff members have varying competency in sign and other languages. Call ahead.
