The mission of the Utah Independent Living Center (UILC) is to assist persons with disabilities achieve greater independence by providing services and activities which enhance independent living skills and promote the public's understanding, accommodation, and acceptance of their rights, needs and abilities.
The UILC is non-residential facility that provides services which enhance the independence of people with disabilities. The UILC was the first independent living center in Utah and have been serving this community (Salt Lake, Summit, and Tooele counties) since April 1982. We are consumer controlled with a majority of staff and board members being people with disabilities.
We provide this services both at the individual and community levels. All services are demand driven, through our consumers. Controlling one’s life and minimizing dependence on other are central themes in the independent living movement. Thus, consumers have a say in the services they receive from the UILC. Elimination barriers in the community enables people with disabilities to be active participants.
