The Texas State Independent Living Council (SILC) was founded in 1989, is mandated by federal law and operates as a non-profit 501(c) (3), tax exempt organization. The purpose of the SILC is to assist in the development of the State Plan for Independent Living, a detailed three-year plan that sets the parameters and establishes the goals for the provision of Independent Living services in Texas with other state agencies. Other roles of the SILC are systems advocacy, education of the public regarding disability-related topics, and provision of technical assistance concerning the Independent Living philosophy and approach. We are proud to say that we have a dedicated team of people who believe in the Independent Living philosophy.
