About Us

Since 1988, Ocean State Center for Independent Living has served as Rhode Island’s “go-to” agency for information, services and/or resources related to disability. In adherence to federal regulations for all Centers for Independent Living, OSCIL’s principal governing board of directors is comprised of a majority of individuals having significant disability. 

OSCIL adheres to the philosophy of Independent Living and, through self-direction, works with people with disabilities to address barriers that prevent independence in the home and community. OSCIL’s long-tenured Executive Director is retiring and the Board is seeking an experienced executive to direct and expand the center’s services. 

  • OSCIL is the only Center for Independent Living in Rhode Island, with locations in Warwick and Pawtucket.
  • It is a key agency for information and referral for Rhode Islanders, their families and other community and state agencies.
  • OSCIL provides nursing home diversion services, addressing barriers to independence in the home with both home modifications and assistive technologies.   
  • OSCIL provides nursing home transition and youth transition services.
  • OSCIL provides individual and group peer support opportunities.
  • OSCIL provides individual and systems advocacy and offers programs such as services for the Deaf community, YMCA Connection and housing assistance.
  • OSCIL also operates a small Personal Care Attendant Program.
