The California state-wide independent living center network is made up of 29 centers and a total of 21 branch offices. Each center has its own region, character and unique challenges in providing services. All centers, however share the same core services, augmented by those additional services dictated by individual community needs.
The region we serve is the tri-counties: Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo. Approximately 20% of the population in the US is people who live with disabilities or functional limitations. That means that more than 250,000 individuals in these three counties have significant barriers to living the lives they choose.
There are options and opportunities available. Of the 4000+ people whose lives we impact annually, more than 300 are those with physical disabilities, 500 are women with disabilities and over 250 are members of ethnic and cultural groups other than white.
And the numbers keep growing.
We can help you, or someone you know, answer these questions:
Do you want to remain in your own home, or become more independent?
Do you need a sign language interpreter or some assistive device to help you communicate?
Do you know your rights as a person with a disability?
