As the Executive Director, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the official website for Services for Independent Living (SIL). This site serves as the single point of contact for people who are in need of our services or who want to learn more about SIL.
SIL is a local agency charged with helping and empowering individuals with disabilities to lead healthy, productive lives and to be able to participate in community life as they choose. Our individual and community services are designed to promote independence. Since 1980, we have been working at local, state and federal levels to change governments and society’s perceptions of people with disabilities. SIL’s main focus is to support and assist individuals with disabilities to meet their personal goals; while encouraging and promoting personal and community advocacy.
We recognize that each person’s disability and life circumstances may pose unique challenges. Staff work with consumers to develop a plan to address their individual needs. Our experienced, dedicated and passionate team are often regarded as being able to think outside the box and pride themselves on excellent customer service.
SIL also needs your help! We have made great strides since our beginning, but we still have much work to do before our vision of a society which is accessible to all will be achieved. I invite you to get involved and join the SIL family. A gift of your time, expertise, and financial support are always welcome.
Please accept my invitation to use this website as a resource to learn more about who we are and the important work we do. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at our offices and events.
