Centers for Independent Living
Colorado Statewide Independent Living Councils
Every state has a Statewide Independent Living Council or “SILC,” and their primary function is to advance independent living through the development and implementation of a three-year State Plan for Independent Living (“SPIL.”)
Colorado SILC's challenge the long-held view that “people with disabilities need care from their community” to one of “people with disabilities can determine the type of support they need to live in and contribute to their community.” The Colorado SILC website offers a Colorado Independent Living Center Locator for those residing outside the Denver Metro area.
