CIL Jacksonville is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization that helps people with disabilities gain and maintain independence. CIL is consumer-driven, community-based, and non-residential. CIL stands as Northeast Florida’s leading cross-disability-based organization, providing personalized services to people with any disability, at any age. CIL was founded on the belief that all people with a disability have the right to set their own goals and direct how those goals are achieved.
Since 1978, CIL offers an array of specialized programs and services which improve the quality of life for its consumers. Connecting all CIL programs are five core services of advocacy, information and referral, independent living skills training, peer support, and transition.
CIL Jacksonville is run by and for people with disabilities. Over 51% of the board and staff have a disability. The entire CIL team offers irreplaceable life experiences, perspectives, and knowledge. As a consumer-driven organization, consumers are at the top of the CIL organizational structure.
