Breaking Barriers ∙ Creating Options ∙ Promoting Change

The Center for Independent Living Options (CILO) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing services for people with permanent disabilities in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. CILO was founded in 1977 by people with disabilities who wanted to provide a support system to help people with physical, sensory, cognitive, and/or psychological disabilities reach their greatest potential and independence. CILO is the oldest independent living center in Ohio and is governed, managed and staffed by a majority of professionals with disabilities who have an insight into the issues experienced by people with disabilities. Through five core services we empower people with disabilities to live productive, rewarding lives with pride and dignity.
