The Center for Independent Living Options (CILO) is dedicated to helping individuals who have physical, sensory, cognitive, and/or psychological disabilities to maintain active, productive lives of their choosing. In fact, we are who we serve. We are governed, managed, and staffed by a majority of professionals with disabilities. This gives us personal insight into the issues that people with disabilities face.
Art Beyond Boundaries has served as the centerpiece of the arts program of the Center for Independent Options and enabled it to expand its mission of breaking down architectural, attitudinal, and programmatic barriers in order to encourage the full participation and inclusion adults and children with disabilities in rich arts and culture available in the region.
