Community Reintegration

SCIL has created the Community Reintegration Program with assistance from a grant from the Illinois Department of Human Services. This program assists persons with disabilities who currently reside in nursing homes to move into a home of their own.

Who is eligible? Any person who:
    • Currently resides in a nursing home
    • Is between the ages of 18-59
    • Has a disability, meets asset guidelines, and
    • Lives in Sangamon, Logan, Christian, Menard, or Montgomery Counties
Referrals can also be made to other Centers for Independent Living that serve other communities throughout the state.

How can the Reintegration Program and SCIL assist you to find independence?
    • Assist with the transition from a nursing home to
    • independent living at home
    • Assist with paperwork
    • Help with locating accessible housing
    • Assist in finding appropriate personal assistants or nursing care
    • Supply necessary household items
    • Ensure all assistive devices are available and in place
    • Assist with establishing utility hook-ups, rent, and housing deposit
    • Provide for minor home modifications, when necessary
