Who We Are . . .

Lake County Center for Independent Living, serving Lake and McHenry counties, is a not-for-profit, disability rights organization. We exist to ensure that all people with disabilities have the tools they need to live independently. Governed and staffed by a majority of people with disabilities, we are a consumer-controlled organization, which means the services we provide are those chosen by our consumers.
