Tim’s Passion

Helping People With Disabilities

Tim has made it his life’s work to help people with disabilities live their best lives. In fact, he is one of only eight who was appointed to the National Advocacy Board of Directors for Amputee Coalition of America.

The Amputee Coalition of America, based in Virginia, reaches out to people across the country with limb loss, empowering them through education, advocacy and support. Founded in 1989, the Amputee Coalition is the leading organization on limb loss in the United States. Their dedication to amputees and their families have helped improve quality of life while ensuring their voices are heard.

In addition to the Amputee Coalition of America, Tim was a member of the Amputee Empowerment Partners — serving as the Commonwealth’s coordinator for the newly disabled — and has served on the board of the Deustch Institute, chairing many of their events. A Scranton, PA-based organization, the Deustch Institute is devoted to creating recreational opportunities for people with disabilities. Since 1979, they have been improving the health and well-being of people with disabilities in northeastern Pennsylvania.

In his newest appointment, Tim serves as a member of the Governor’s Advisory Committee for People with Disabilities. This committee advises the Governor’s Cabinet for People with Disabilities, which is responsible for making recommendations to the Governor on disability issues.

Appointed by Governor Tom Wolf, Tim shares his perspective, thoughts and experience on all matters related to having a disability and being a parent of a child with a disability. From pre-employment skills to transportation, Tim continues to improve the lives of people with disabilities by shedding light on challenges and proposing viable solutions to overcome them.

Tim’s Unique Perspective

Knowing What It’s Like to Have a Disability and Parent a Child With a Disability

In 2012 Tim Moran became the CEO of MyCIL (Northeast PA Center for Independent Living). Previously, he was on our Board of Directors, serving as its president for two years.

Tim brought his broad business experience to MyCIL. Prior to joining our team, he was the Business Development Manager of the world’s largest prosthetics and orthotic company.

But, more importantly, he brought his unique perspective as a person with a disability and a parent of a child with a disability.

Tim and his wife Lisa have nine children, ranging from college to preschool age. His youngest Matthew was born in 2014.

Matthew has a congenital heart defect and Down Syndrome. While he is healthy and happy now, the road to get here had its challenges. Tim can empathize with parents of children who have disabilities because he is one.

Tim knows firsthand what it’s like. Whether you’re someone who has a disability or have a loved one with a disability, he can relate.

Growing Our Programs and Extending Our Reach

As the CEO of MyCIL, Tim aligns our resources with our mission of helping people live independently. He’s committed to growing our programs, creating new ones and meeting our client’s needs at every step. A key part of his role is obtaining funds, grants and revenue streams so we can continue serving our clients and the community.

He works directly with our team to ensure we’re making the greatest positive impact on the lives of people with disabilities. As our organization’s leader, he fosters a positive work environment and lights our passion for helping others.

Constantly looking to the future, he seeks out new opportunities for MyCIL to shape the community we live in. Reaching out to politicians, community leaders, advocates and clients, he develops plans for improving how people with disabilities live in our community.
