While we plan on having the Loan Closet open every day, because of COVID there may be times we feel it is unsafe to do so out of concern for the people we serve and the people we employ. We ask you please call AHEAD (517)782-6054 to check if it is open and to request equipment so we can make the process easier for all involved.
Fix-dis services are under the same conditions as the Loan Closet. Equipment must be dropped off the Tuesday before to allow proper sterilization time for people working on equipment.

How different would the story have been if Victor Frankenstein and the villagers had reacted to the “creature” not with fear and violence, but with “yes and” and “got your back”?
Watch Jim Ansaldo from the Indiana Institute On Disability at Indiana University, lead this participatory, thoughtful, and fun session. They used improv-- the art of making things up on the spot -- to explore these ideas and co-create new stories of disability that represent our highest aspirations.
Get ready to follow along in this active and fun presentation, focused around how we can change the discourse about disability.
YOUR OPINION COUNTS
The Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) needs to hear directly from people who have disabilities, their family members, friends, caregivers and other stakeholders. Your participation in the process is vital and we appreciate your time and consideration in completing this survey.
The information collected will help to assess how those programs and services are meeting the needs of people who have disabilities living in Michigan. The following link will take you to the survey.
