EMPOWERING INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES

aka SIL   |   Euclid, OH   |  www.sil-oh.org

Mission

To empower persons with disabilities to lead inclusive lives through advocacy, community engagement, and self-directed services.

Notes from the nonprofit

Services for Independent (SIL) embraces the Independent Living Philosophy that promotes the rights of individuals with disabilities to control and direct their own lives; to make decisions and take responsibility for their actions; to have opportunities to participate in all aspects of community life; to exercise the greatest degree of choice about where you live, with whom you live and how you live; and to take risks, being allowed to fail and to learn and grow from these efforts.

SIL services are designed to provide supports and skills to help individuals remain in the community of their choice.
