Centers for Independent Living (CILs) empower persons with disabilities to take charge of their lives and guide their own destinies, maximizing independence. CIL staff and consumers work together to remove barriers and prejudices in society so that all individuals can live and work and enjoy all that their communities have to offer. Fifty-one percent of the staff and boards of CILs are persons with disabilities; we are who we serve.
The Florida network of 15 Centers for Independent Living serve persons with all types of disabilities. CILs serve all ages from children to seniors. Every Florida county is served by this network, both urban and rural areas.
CILs are federally mandated under Section 725 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act as amended in 1998. They are funded with Federal Department of Health & Human Services, Florida Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, grants and private donations. CILs are represented through the Florida Association of Centers for Independent Living (FACIL) as an advocacy and support organization.

The Disability Achievement Center is the best stop for your personal achievement goals. If living, learning, working and playing as independently as you choose are your goals then we are here to bring you all the choices you need.
Your financial support allows us to continue to work with individuals with disabilities and facilitate opportunities for them to make decisions, pursue activities of their own choosing, and be afforded every opportunity to be as self-sufficient as possible.
