Blue Water Center for Independent Living

BWCIL

Welcome to the Blue Water Center for Independent Living.  As the disability resource of the thumb, we work with individuals, their families, and other organizations and agencies to help people with disabilities live independently.

 

With an administrative office in Port Huron and staff in St. Clair, Lapeer, Sanilac, Tuscola, and Huron Counties, we help over 4,500 people with disabilities and their families lead productive lives each year. In many cases, our efforts extend beyond the people we serve to benefit the entire community.

 

Our accomplishments and track record come, fundamentally, from the diversity of people served, their multiple needs, and service to the whole individual.

 

Very often we hear the question, What is the Blue Water Center for Independent Living? We are a consumer-driven organization that advocates, informs and supports all people with disabilities to live independently.

 

This is our creed: We believe that no one be excluded from participation in the community due to a disability; that disabilities are a normal part of life; that self-determination is essential to our dignity as human beings; that the best people to address issues of disability in the community are people with disabilities; that all people have equal access to all aspects of life and community.

 

“There are two ways of spreading light,” novelist Edith Wharton wrote. “To be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.” We at the Blue Water Center for Independent Living hope we are both, as do all dedicated individuals at all Independent Living Centers across the land.
