Creating Opportunities for Disability Inclusion

Disability inclusion is a Civil Right. Center for Independent Living works to create fully inclusive and accessible communities where everyone can meaningfully contribute regardless of disability. Our philosophy is based on peer role models: people with disabilities assisting people with disabilities on pathways toward independence. In Central Florida, CIL empowers thousands of lives every year – since 1976.
