What is a Center for Independent Living?


Despite what it may sound like, it is not a place where people live.
Rather, it's a resource center, a means by which people with disabilities
come together to help one another to achieve personal and professional
goals, and to change the system that too often places obstacles in their way.

There are more than 400 Centers across the country, many of which are
funded, as we are, by the U.S. Department of Education through the
Rehabilitation Services Administration. We are required operate within
the parameters of Title VII of the Rehabilitation Act, which among other
things requires that the majority of our board and staff be made up of
qualified individuals with disabilities.

There are, of course, other specific guidelines which must be met,
but the most important thing is that we must understand, embrace and
exemplify the independent living philosophy, and help others to do the same.
And we must be accountable to our constituency.
