Empowering people with disabilities to increase their independence through choice and opportunity.

Who We Serve  

We work with people of all ages — from children who might have a disability to senior citizens. We assist people who have a wide variety of disabilities, including physical, cognitive, visual, auditory and mental/emotional.

What Is A Center For Independent Living?

A Center for Independent Living is a nonprofit, community-based agency that provides five core services: advocacy, independent living, information and referral, peer consultation and transition.

Bloom Café

Bloom Café serves a fresh take on casual dining while helping people with disabilities grow their independence through a unique job training program. The café is open from 8 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Sunday.

From an accessible health and wellness center to interpreter services, we will help you find a solution.
