Information and Referral
Hundreds of people call the CIL of Bucks County each year for information on various disability-related issues and services. Our on-site data bank contains thousands of resources to assist you.
This service, a departure from traditional counseling, offers a person with a disability the opportunity to discuss personal problems with someone who has shared similar experiences. Peer counseling will provide you with credible, practical solutions from someone who has been in your situation. Peer counseling is offered in both individual and group settings.
The CIL assists consumers in maneuvering through the complications, questions, and at times, roadblocks that may be encountered when trying to access the benefits, products and services that meet your needs. During the advocacy process, you will also learn how to advocate for yourself.
