The Lehigh Valley Center for Independent Living (LVCIL) is a non-profit organization based in Allentown, PA that provides information, services and support to people with all types of disabilities.
At LVCIL, we believe that every individual has the right to live a healthy, happy, and productive life in a community that is free from all barriers. We can help you achieve or maintain your independence through many of our supportive services and programs, including our four core services: Information and Referral, Peer Support, Advocacy, and Independent Living Skills. In addition, we also provide specialized services, such as specialized housing search and placement, services for Veterans, 24-hour sign language services, youth transition services, supported employment, supports coordination under several waiver programs, community education, and more.
As one of eighteen Centers for Independent Living in the state of Pennsylvania, LVCIL is governed, managed, and staffed at all times by a majority of persons with disabilities. For more information, please call 610-770-9781 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
