Eastern Oregon Center for Independent Living (EOCIL), a center for independent living, is a cross-disability nonprofit community-based resource and advocacy center that promotes independent living and equal access for all persons with disabilities. Based in Ontario, Oregon, with additional offices in Pendleton and The Dalles, it serves consumers in 13 central and eastern Oregon counties: Baker, Gilliam, Grant, Harney, Hood River, Malheur, Morrow, Sherman, Umatilla, Union, Wallowa, Wasco and Wheeler. EOCIL operates from a philosophy of consumer control, peer models and self-advocacy. The desired outcome of all EOCIL independent living services is to improve the individual's ability to function, continue functioning, or move toward functioning independently in his or her family or community.
EOCIL recognizes that all individuals are endowed with civil and human rights. These rights are not abridged by the presence of a disability. EOCIL complies with all applicable state and federal laws and regulations and guarantees the provision of all rights established by law. Individuals will not be excluded from services based on gender, age, race, color, disabilities, religion, origin or sexual orientation.
