Tim’s Important Message to You
In His Own Words
MyCIL is more than a job — it’s my life. As a person with a disability, I have chosen to rise above my disability to live a full and uncompromising life. The goal of MyCIL is to help others live independently in much the same way. I say “we can be independent when we do it together” because everyone can benefit from a helping hand.
Together with my wife Lisa, we are raising nine children. Our youngest, Matthew, was born with both Down Syndrome and a congenital heart defect. Our journey as parents has been challenging, but today, Matthew is healthy and happy.
With our help, he will grow to live a fulfilling life. I would be happy to answer your questions, help you with your concerns and offer our expertise in the field of independent living.
To us, living independently means living your best life, your way. You should decide how to live your life. You should decide what services and supports you need. And you should decide how best to use your funds. Just as anyone in the general population, you deserve to live an independent life, your way.
Independent living gives adults with disabilities and families of children with disabilities choice. This includes the choice of caregivers. It also includes choosing what services you want to use your resources on.
Having the choice of caregivers and control over your budget empowers you. In turn you will experience more freedom. The result is a better quality of life.
For each person, the definition of independent living is different. Our role is to help you achieve your unique definition of independent living. With MyCIL, you get a partner in independent living who tailors services to fit your needs, goals and challenges. Together, we can live independently.
