Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC), is a non-profit statewide planning organization governed by people with disabilities from across the state. The role of the SILC is to identify barriers to independent living and to collaborate with the Centers for Independent Living, Vocational Rehabilitation Services and other related entities. The goal is to remove barriers and to increase the supports and services needed to create independent living opportunities. Meetings are scheduled throughout the year and are open to interested citizens. For more information, contact Sharon Boland at 302-761-8275 or Sharon.Boland@state.de.us.
