(18)

*We service both Suffolk and Nassau County*

SILO has been a staple of the disability community since 1985. An Advocacy and Information and Referral agency, it has worked with individuals, businesses, and agencies to promote equal access for people with all disabilities. SILO is not a "case management" agency; rather, our focus is on empowerment, mentorship, knowledge, and advocacy. Most of our se

rvice staff are people with disabilities themselves, and this peer model facilitates a better relationship between the Independent Living Skills Specialist and the individual being served. Two questions we ask all consumers before getting involved with us: "How badly do you want to achieve your goals?" and "Are you willing to work hard to accomplish them?" SILO's services are person-centered so individuals determine their individual goals, not other people. SILO helps the individual acquire the tools needed to accomplish those goals.

Our Story

The Suffolk Independent Living Organization (SILO) has been a staple of the disability community in Suffolk County since 1985. An Advocacy and Information and Referral agency, it has worked with individuals, businesses, and agencies to promote equal access for people with all disabilities. SILO is not a "case management" agency; rather, our focus is on empowerment, mentorship, knowledge, and advocacy. Most of our service staff are people with disabilities themselves, and this peer model facilitates a better relationship between the Independent Living Skills Specialist and the individual being served. Two questions we ask all consumers before getting involved with us: "How badly do you want to achieve your goals?" and "Are you willing to work hard to accomplish them?" SILO's services are person-centered so individuals determine their individual goals, not other people. SILO helps the individual acquire the tools needed to accomplish those goals. SILO is Suffolk County's only independent living center. We need your support. If you are a person with a disability, living in Suffolk County, SILO urges you to become more involved in making our community more accessible. Whether it is attending a peer support group, advocacy training, or volunteer work, your skills and personal experiences can assist SILO in achieving its goal of full integration of people with disabilities throughout Suffolk County. We need you to become involved!
