Advocacy for Individuals
Provided upon request to individuals with disabilities who need assistance in accessing programs or services or who feel they have been discriminated against because of their disability. Staff may provide the service directly or refer the individual for legal assistance if appropriate. AIM-CIL Center staff will also assist individuals to learn how to advocate for themselves.
Advocacy for Systems Change
AIM-CIL works with area residents with disabilities to reduce architectural, program, and attitudinal barriers to independent living and increase opportunities for full participation in community life. We work on a variety of issues at the local, state, and national levels including affordable accessible housing, transportation, and accessibility of the built environment. Volunteers are always needed to assist us in our efforts to ensure people with disabilities have equal rights.
