The Ann Arbor Center for Independent Living has dedicated itself for more than 32 years to the success of children, youth and adults who live with blindness and visual impairments, deafness and hearing impairments, cerebral palsy, arthritis, post polio, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, amputation, mental illness, substance abuse, autism, epilepsy, learning disabilities, traumatic brain injury, stroke and other disability characteristics, as they live their lives at home, at school, at work and in their communities.
We are a growing and dynamic community enrichment, learning, and advocacy center. Through individualized counseling, advocacy efforts, skill-building classes, recreation and arts programming, and more, we help individuals with disabilities to build their skills, advocate for what they need, find friends, and feel at home. Each year, we impact the lives of over 4,000 people throughout Southeast Michigan, including people with disabilities, their families and friends, and members of the business community.
