Support the Center in The Amazing Give!


We’re so excited to be a part of the #AmazingGive!

What It Is:

For 24 hours between 6pm on March 29th and 6pm on March 30th, The Amazing Give will raise money for local nonprofits, like the Center for Independent Living of North Central Florida, through a single online donation platform, providing an easy way to connect donors to the charitable causes they care about most and encourage them to take action.

Why We’re Doing It:

The purpose of this community-wide giving challenge is to increase public awareness of the impact local nonprofits make in addressing our community’s challenges, bring nonprofits and donors together, and connect people to the causes that move them the most.

Please visit this link to our page, consider a donation and help us spread the word: https://www.theamazinggive.org/organizations/center-for-independent-living-of-north-central-florida

Thank you for your support!

New Art Classes at the Center for Independent Living!

The CIL is proud to announce that we now have art classes!

Group homes and consumers of the CIL are welcome to attend these class every Monday and Friday from 1-2:30 p.m.

“The classes give them something different to do. It’s really good because it gives them something to do outside of peer support,” said Mark Brisbane, head of Peer Support and Peer Support Groups.

Art classes are considered to be therapeutic and a great way for people to express themselves and their creativity.

The first class was on Monday, the 13th of February, and it was a success. There was great participation as they were drawing and painting spheres.

The materials are provided by the CIL and Mar Dominguez, who introduced the arts in medicine program to the CIL in the form of these classes.

The CIL is excited to develop these art classes and to see more people enjoying them!
