Lake County Center for Independent Living (LCCIL) is a non-residential, cross-disability organization governed and staffed by a majority of people with disabilities. We advocate for a fully accessible society that is inclusive of everyone. LCCIL believes that the disability community must have the freedom and opportunity to control our own lives.
MISSION AND VALUES
It is LCCIL's mission to empower people with disabilities to lead self-directed lives as valued members of the community.
We achieve our mission through programs within five core services:
WHO WE SERVE
LCCIL has served persons with disabilities in Lake County since 1990 and those in McHenry County since 2012. We are a cross-disability organization, which means we serve anyone with any disability, of any age. Our services are free and we encourage you to check out our Services page to see what we offer.
