Consumer Control

The Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and later amendments, mandated that centers for independent living focus on consumer control. To ensure that focus is maintained, at least 51% of a center’s staff and board of directors must be people with disabilities. Consumer control means the consumer has the right and responsibility to direct his or her own life. That is what makes SCIL a bit different than other social service agencies. Each consumer is encouraged to decide what his/her own goals will be. SCIL staff supports and encourages consumers to take the necessary steps to reach each goal.
