The Centers for Independent Living (CILs) are consumer-controlled, community-based, cross-disability, nonresidential, private nonprofit agencies that provide independent living services. At a minimum, centers are required to provide the following independent living core services:
– Information and referral;
– IL skills training;
– Peer counseling;
– Individual and systems advocacy; and
– Services that facilitate transition from nursing homes and other institutions to the community, provide assistance to those at risk of entering institutions, and facilitate transition of youth to postsecondary life.
