Welcome to PCIL
We are the voice of Independent Living (IL) in Pennsylvania. The Independent Living philosophy, which is about having choice and control over our lives, is our life’s guide, so don’t mind our passion. As a representative of our membership, we are seen meeting with legislators, policy makers, and stakeholders to effect systems change through legislation, policies and collaborations.
We are the membership association of Centers for Independent Living (CILs). We strive to provide breaking news, technical assistance, and special benefits to our members. To the disabled citizens of this Commonwealth, we strive to remove physical and attitudinal barriers and facilitate everyone’s dream about choosing where they want to live and how they live by having control over their lives.
We hope you stay with us awhile and get to know us. Be sure to read our vision, mission, and core values, visit our links to our friends and supporters, and watch for breaking news. We are...IL at its best in Pennsylvania!
