Centers for Independent Living provide essential services for individuals with disabilities to promote independence in communities. This is especially important in rural communities where other types of support services may be limited.
This free educational webinar will provide an overview of the Centers for Independent Living (CIL), eligibility criteria for utilizing CIL services, services provided, and ways to get involved with your local Center for Independent Living.
