Is the ability to make your own choices.
It is also the ability to ask for Help so you can continue to make your own choices
Your life. Your decisions.
At the Resource Center for Independent Living (RCIL), we believe that to live independently you don't need permission, you need resources.
At RCIL, we provide real solutions to the personal, social or governmental barriers that may prevent your decisions from being respected and realized. We have three decades of experience in providing individually tailored advocacy, information, and training services.
RCIL believes that the widespread poverty, segregation, and isolation of people with disabilities is unacceptable, should not be tolerated, and requires change.
The Ribbon-Cutting for RCIL's new headquarters was Tuesday, November 12th. As RCIL CEO Zvia McCormick stated, “We are excited to stay in downtown Utica and continue to grow as an organization. I thank the RCIL Board and organizations that invested in this project, including Empire State Development (ESD) and The Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties, as well as our partners, especially Charles A. Gaetano Construction Corporation, for their continued support.”. To read the full press release, please click here.
