The Statewide Independent Living Council of Tennessee (SILC), is a 501(c)3 independent nonprofit governed by people with disabilities. For more than 20 years, our mission has been to promote Independent Living (IL) philosophies in Tennessee and support its practices and values. As such, the SILC educates the community and public leaders about the IL philosophy, provides training and support to the Independent Living community, and facilitates funding opportunities for expanding the practice of IL in Tennessee.
