Making a Difference

  • “The social activities at the CIL are inspiring. Here is the one place you see what people with disabilities can do, instead of seeing what they can’t do. At events, I’m amazed by the lives I’ve seen other people lead. In spite of their disabilities, they live pretty regular lives. I wish we’d do more.”

    Thom Delecki, Ann Arbor CIL Consumer and Individual with a Vision Impairment and ADHD
