VACIL is a statewide association of Centers for Independent Living (CILs)
that advocates for the integration and inclusion of people with
disabilities into all aspects of society. The association also
promotes the professional development, improvement, and expansion of
community-based, consumer-controlled CILs, and promotes community
education throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.
"People with disabilities will have a community-based consumer-directed
service delivery system."
"A CIL is a consumer-controlled, community-based, cross-disability,
nonresidential, private, non-profit agency that is designed and operated
within a local community by individuals with disabilities and provides
an array of independent living services which are described in the
Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended."
