We can be independent when we do ittogether.
The CIL is more than a job — it’s my life. As a person with a disability, I have chosen to rise above my disability to live a full and uncompromising life. The goal of the CIL is to help others live independently in much the same way. I say “we can be independent when we do it together” because everyone can benefit from a helping hand.
Together with my wife Lisa, we are raising nine children. Our youngest, Matthew, was born with both Down Syndrome and a congenital heart defect. Our journey as parents has been challenging, but today, Matthew is healthy and happy.
With our help, he will grow to live a fulfilling life. I would be happy to answer your questions, help you with your concerns and offer our expertise in the field of independent living.
"We particularly like how the CIL’s professionals have come up with special projects that allow these kids to get involved in the community and become contributing members of society. "
