We have four core services; information & referral, advocacy, peer support, and independent living skills training.
The Progressive Center has a comprehensive library of resources on advocacy, assistive technology, employment, housing, personal assistants, and transportation. Our quarterly newsletter keeps readers informed of relevant activities, legislation, and news affecting people with disabilities.
PCIL assists on an individual level by helping people with disabilities to achieve full inclusion within the community. Also, on the systems level, the Progressive Center works with legislators and relative disabilities groups to effect change in the community.
The Progressive Center provides social groups for people with disabilities. Interacting with other people with disabilities can give insight into strategies that can be used to cope with the challenges associated with independent living.
The Progressive Center offers independent living skills instruction that touch on a variety of topics. Examples include money skills, interviewing techniques, and social skills. PCIL can help with understanding the Americans with Disabilities Act and how to deal with insensitive and or/discriminatory behavior.
