About Suffolk Independent Living Organization

The Suffolk Independent Living Organization (SILO) has been a staple of the disability community in Suffolk County since 1985. A 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, consumer controlled, non-residential, civil rights, mentorship and educational organization, SILO is philosophically tied to the nationwide Independent Living Movement which asserts that people with disabilities have the same rights and responsibilities, needs and desires, as their non-disabled peers.

SILO is Suffolk County’s only independent living center and has long had the reputation of providing the most comprehensive cross-disability related services to the disabled community. SILO empowers people with disabilities to take an active role in the community in which they live, work and play.
