The goal of our program is to assist consumers to develop the skills needed to self-direct their own lives. MCIL believes that ALL people have the right to make their own decisions. Our IL Skills Program utilizes a "hands on" approach to skill development. The consumer meets with IL worker one on one and performs the task under the direction of the IL worker.
