Brain Injury Survivors need to learn abouth the rights and laws that are in place and desighned to protect them so call in and join in the discussion Tonight!!!

The foundation of these services is the peer-to-peer relationship, where people with disabilities act as mentors for other people with disabilities, showing them by example how to help themselves and to live independently. The core services that CILs provide are:

  • Individual Advocacy and Systems Advocacy
  • Peer Counseling
  • Information and Referral
  • Independent Living Skills Training

Depending on the needs of the communities they serve, CILs may provide other services that vary from one center to another. For more information contact the center nearest you.
