MultipleChoices™ Center for Independent Living in Athens, GA

MultipleChoices™ Center for Independent Living (MCCIL) is a multi-service nonprofit agency of disability advocates for independent living. We serve individuals living with disabilities throughout a 10-county area of Northeastern Georgia. (See counties listed below.)

What is a Center for Independent Living (CIL)? A CIL is a private, not-for-profit agency that provides non-residential, non-medical Independent Living Services for people of all ages living with a disability. Each CIL is governed by a percentage of staff and board members who themselves are living with a disability.

MCCIL, and Centers for Independent Living nationwide, provide the following disability resource core services: peer support, information and referral, independent living skills training, systems and individual advocacy, and community/youth transitioning and diversion. Additional services and/or programs often are CIL-specific.

Turn to us, or to a CIL that serves your geographic location (www.ilru.org), for support and guidance in living a full and happy life, regardless of your disability.

INDEPENDENT LIVING

Individuals living with disabilities essentially are deemed the expert regarding the nature of the wants and needs that bring about and/or sustain their independent living and quality of life goals. Through our services, programs, activities, and our compassion for others and for community, we assist such individuals in their independent living pursuits.
