Welcome to the Boston Center for Independent Living  (BCIL)

BCIL is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has provided services to people with disabilities since 1974, when it became the second independent living center in the country. The organization was created by people with disabilities seeking full integration into society. BCIL accomplishes this by empowering people of all ages with a wide range of disabilities with the practical skills and self-confidence to take control over their lives and become active members of the communities in which they live. At the same time, BCIL engages in advocacy and community organizing to promote access and change within society.

Our Mission Statement

The Boston Center for Independent Living is a frontline civil rights organization led by people with disabilities that advocates to eliminate discrimination, isolation and segregation by providing advocacy, information and referral, peer support, skills training, PCA services, and transitional services in order to enhance the independence of people with disabilities.

The PCA Workforce Council is working to establish local meet and greet events for MassHealth PCA Consumer-employers to meet PCA candidates in a neutral place. The meet and greet events are formatted in a speed-networking style with each consumer-employer spending about 8-10 minutes with each PCA candidate, with the goal of talking to as many PCA candidates as possible, and hopefully finding a few people to interview for the open position. If consumer-employers are unavailable, they can send a surrogate, family member or friend to attend in their place.

Join the next one on Wednesday, August 29, 2018, 1:30-3:30 p.m. at 1199SEIU Union Hall, 108 Myrtle Street, Quincy, MA 02171
