Services provided by the centers may include but are not limited to: information and referrals; independent living skills training; peer counseling; individual and systems advocacy; community planning and decision making; role modeling; interacting with local, state and Federal legislators; and staging recreational events that integrate individuals with disabilities with their non-disabled peers.
