The Center for Independent Living is a Winter Park-based non-profit organization that has focused on breaking down barriers for individuals with disabilities for 45 years. Programs include providing increased accessibility and independence through home modifications and durable medical equipment, assisting young adults living with disabilities as they transition from school to adult life, and helping those with disabilities find jobs, Event Chair Kinsey Lallathin says.
The annual fundraiser gala will take place on June 25 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Zoom to raise funds in support of the organization’s work for those within the Central Florida community with disabilities. This event will also be streamed simultaneously on Facebook and YouTube. During the event, viewers can expect to celebrate the strides that CIL and its supporters have made to break down barriers for those with disabilities in our community as well as hear from someone whose life has been impacted by CIL.
