IMPACT serves the six Illinois counties of Madison, Macoupin, Jersey, Bond, Greene, and Calhoun. IMPACT is part of a larger Disability Rights Movement. There are 23 Centers for Independent Living, like IMPACT CIL, in Illinois and over 500 throughout the United States.
In order to promote consumer control, IMPACT CIL continues to be operated by people with disabilities. IMPACT CIL’s governing Board of Directors consists of a minimum of 51% of people with disabilities. The majority of staff also consists of people with disabilities.
Our primary source of funding is through State and Federal dollars, which are administered through the Illinois Department of Human Services/ The Division of Rehabilitation services. We are also funded through the United Way of Southwestern Illinois. We also depend upon community support through donations and fund raising activities.
