Welcome to the Kansas Association of Centers for Independent Living
The Kansas Association of Centers for Independent Living (KACIL), is a member organization comprising seven (7) Centers for Independent Living (CILs) spanning the state. Our members cover diverse regions from metropolitan to frontier rural maintaining a commitment to promote the Independent Living Philosophy and provide the core Independent Living Services upon which our grassroots organizations are founded.
Our member Centers provide services to people with all types of disabilities of all ages and all income levels through grant funded and fee for service programs. Centers are consumer controlled, private nonprofit agencies promoting the Independent Living Philosophy of equal opportunity and self-determination for individuals with disabilities. Centers for Independent Living provide education and assistance to businesses and all other entities in the community to increase access for people with disabilities.
We advocate at a local, state and national level for the rights of all people with disabilities to actively participate in their communities; living, working and raising families in the communities of their choice.
KACIL provides a powerful framework for member Centers to excel in advocacy and services, ensuring that all Kansans with disabilities have opportunities for independent living and enjoy their civil and human rights.
KACIL will facilitate collective work among member CILs resulting in a resilient association, driving change for people with disabilities
