We are a community based, non-profit, independent living advocacy organization created by and for people with disabilities.
HCIL, BCCIL, and FBCIL promote the full inclusion, equal opportunity and participation of persons with disabilities in every aspect of community life. We believe that people with disabilities have the right to make choices affecting their lives, a right to take risks, a right to fail, and a right to succeed.
