Tri-Lakes Center for Independent Living (TLCIL) is a grass roots, not for profit, civil rights organization dedicated to helping individuals with disabilities gain equal access to the communities they live in. We believe that everyone deserves to live well, and participate fully in the communities that they live in.

TLCIL is a peer run organization. This means that we understand what people with disabilities face because we too have been there. Over half of our Board of Directors has a disability, and over half of our staff has a disability too.

Our center has been serving the entirety of both Franklin and Essex counties for over 10 years.
