Vision

The vision for Independent Living in Maryland is for people with disabilities to have information, choices and control over the services and supports in their lives so they can participate fully in all aspects of society.

Goals

Maryland SILC promotes the independent living philosophy which includes consumer control, peer support, self-help, self-determination, equal access and individual and systems advocacy. These factors are essential to maximize the leadership, empowerment, independence, and productivity of individuals with disabilities, as well as to ensure the integration and full inclusion of individuals with disabilities into the mainstream of society.

Mission

The mission of Maryland SILC is to promote, support and enhance opportunities for Marylanders with disabilities to maximize choices to independently live, work and play

There will be a Special Executive Committee meeting on May 3, 2023 at 12:30 pm
