Assisting Individuals with Disabilities in West Virginia

The Coordinating Council for Independent Living (CCIL) is licensed as a Behavioral Health agency by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (WVDHHR) to provide case management and habilitation services to individuals with an I/DD diagnosis. Unless otherwise noted, services are delivered under the guidelines of the WVDHHR Medicaid I/DD Waiver Program.

CCIL was organized to serve as a leader in providing the services necessary to ensure that persons with disabilities have the opportunity to achieve and maintain their highest level of independent functioning. Supporting this mission is the understanding that all individuals have the right to live as independently as possible and that the services needed to achieve and maintain independence should be available and accessible regardless of age, sex, race, ethnic background, religion, political persuasion, type of disability, financial status, or level of functioning.

Our History

The Coordinating Council for Independent Living (CCIL) has been serving West Virginians with Developmental Disabilities (DD) since 1980 through a variety of programs designed to assist in developing and maintaining an independent lifestyle. CCIL’s utmost commitment is to provide the highest quality of service to all eligible residents in all counties throughout the state of WV.

CCIL began serving individuals with disabilities in the 1980s through various services such as group homes, job training, supported employment, case management, etc. In 1990, CCIL began providing Title XIX IDD Waiver Services leading to over 30 years of experience being a provider of this state Waiver program. CCIL has served over 800 WV families through this program.
