    Advocating for full integration, independence & civil rights of people with disabilities and seniors

    The Regional Center for Independent Living (RCIL) assists people with all types of disabilities who want the opportunity to live independently and be active members of the community. Our core services include Information Referrals, Peer Support, Independent Living Skills Training, and Advocacy. We also offer specialty services that address a variety of needs including housing, accessibility, environmental modifications, benefits advisement, employment, and youth services.
