Community Services

Resources Center

In conjunction with its information database, the CIL of Bucks County has compiled an extensive library of books, other printed materials and videotapes to assist people in their awareness, knowledge and understanding of disability issues. Community members and service providers are welcome to visit and peruse our library. The resources may be used on-site or may be borrowed. If the item you are looking for is not available, feel free to suggest it to us.

Community Education

The CIL recognizes the need to educate society about disability issues. The CIL plays an important role in creating a “barrier-free” world that is just as important as preparing persons with disabilities to access that world. Therefore, the CIL works with businesses, housing agencies, transit authorities, public officials and the community-at-large to create an awareness and understanding of the issues faced by individuals with disabilities.

Technical Assistance

Complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Fair Housing Act and other legislation that support people with disabilities can be a complicated process. Therefore, the CIL of Bucks County offers its expertise on a fee-for-service basis to businesses, contractors, government, housing, service agencies and other interested parties. The CIL is ready to assist you with staff training, accessibility surveys, advocacy, employment and other avenues that you wish to explore.

Deaf/HOH Outreach

All CILBC services are also available to the deaf and hard-of-hearing community. Please call our TTY line at 215.752.7131 for more information.
