Who We Are

ETCIL’s mission is to help people with disabilities achieve greater independence, self-sufficiency, and full participation in their communities.

East Texas Center for Independent Living (ETCIL) is a private, community-based, non-residential, consumer-driven, non-profit corporation whose services are developed, directed, and delivered primarily by persons who have disabilities. ETCIL assists persons with various disabilities toward increasing personal self-determination, minimizing dependence upon others and engaging in community.
