Your annual contribution to Options CIL will help us provide programs and services that support our mission:  We partner with persons with disabilities in Kankakee and Iroquois counties who want to live independently and participate fully in society.

Options CIL is a non-residential, not-for-profit, community-based, consumer-controlled organization supported by annual membership contributions, grants, and donations.  

Through our services of information and referral, peer support, independent living skills training, and advocacy, Options assists persons with disabilities to have control over their lives, and to be able to choose how and where to live.

We also work to dispel myths, stereotypes, and misconceptions about people with disabilities, and encourage the community to become more aware of disability-related issues and concerns.
