Located about one mile from the Las Vegas Strip, SNCIL has been in Southern Nevada since 1984. In 1995 SNCIL became a stand-alone Center for Independent Living and established a satellite office to serve the rural areas of Southern Nevada.

Differing from most organizations that serve people with disabilities, SNCIL is founded on the belief that independent living is about consumer control. Guided by the Independent Living and People First Philosophy, the majority of board, staff and volunteers are individuals with disabilities. We are here to help you adapt to living with your disability and pursue the life you want to live.

SNCIL is one of approximately 350 consumer directed Centers located throughout the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico and American Samoa funded by the Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Community Living.


We are committed to “Removing Barriers Preventing Independent Living” by providing services designed to empower people with disabilities to:

  • Make individual choices
  • Assume responsibility to direct their lives
  • Manage their own affairs
  • Fulfill social roles
  • Achieve independent lifestyles in the community
