Supporting Centers For Independent Living Statewide.
The Florida Association of Centers for Independent Living (FACIL) is a statewide membership organization whose mission is to strengthen the capacity of Centers for Independent Living (CILs) to support community living and independence for Floridians with disabilities.
FACIL members and officers are the Executive Directors of the 15 CILs that serve all 67 counties in Florida.
FACIL carries out its mission by:
Providing a statewide voice in support of Independent Living to the Florida Legislature, state and local governmental agencies and other human service organizations;
Enhancing the public’s understanding of the vital role CILs play in the lives of Floridians with disabilities; and
Leveraging a diverse array of resources for FACIL members to expand their positive impact for Floridians with disabilities.
These core values guide our work together:
Integrity – We are honest, transparent, and accountable and maintain the highest ethical standards.
Innovation – We continuously examine our practices and implement more effective ways to support CILs.
Unity – We strive to be inclusive, collaborative, and dedicated to mutual respect.
