Services Available: Center for Independent Living provide four core services: advocacy, peer support, information and referral, and independent living skills training.

Advocacy is working to remove the barriers to independent living and full inclusion in all aspects of community life. Sometimes Centers will advocate for the rights of one person in his or her own community. Sometimes Centers work to achieve change that will benefit thousands or even millions of persons with disabilities all over the state or the nation. This kind of systems change is often achieved through legislative and regulatory advocacy. Systems advocacy focuses on barrier removal and equal access to society.

Peer support is providing the opportunity for people to learn and grow by discussing their needs, concerns and issues with people who have had similar experiences. Sometimes staff will provide the peer support, sometimes individuals will receive their support from another person in the community, and sometimes they will take part in a support group.

Information and referral gives people access to the information and resources they need to make informed choices and get what they need to live independently.

Independent living skills training helps individuals acquire the skills they need to live. Often it will include teaching people how to employ and manage personal assistants, or care for physical needs related to their disability, or how to communicate effectively. Who better than another person with a disability to show someone the "tricks of the trade?"
