About Services for Independent Living (SIL)
Services for Independent Living (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.
30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
Services for Independent Living is proud to be a member of ADA Cleveland, a coalition of disability-related organizations that seeks to celebrate, lead, and engage around the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), which turns 30 this year!
The March for Access, originally planned for July 25, 2020, has been changed into a virtual month-long Call for Access beginning July 26! The Call for Access will help celebrate 30 years of the ADA while also advocating for further access for people with disabilities.
Each day during the 30 days for 30 years, you will have a chance to advocate for further access by taking an action like contacting your representatives, displaying a yard sign, or attending an educational webinar. There are also many activities for all to enjoy, like an accessible hike, dance classes, and chalk art. With lots of ways to make an impact, everyone can make a difference in their own way!
