OSCIL is Rhode Island's
Center for Independent Living

The Independent Living Philosophy advocates for the rights and dignity of people with disabilities, emphasizing their autonomy, self-determination, and full inclusion in society. It seeks to remove barriers and provide support services that enable individuals with disabilities to lead independent lives, make their own choices, and participate actively in all aspects of life. As Rhode Island's sole Independent Living Center, OSCIL is ready to help all Rhode Islanders of any age with any disability live their best lives.
