Law Offices of Scott Glovsky Supports the Service Center for Independent Life in Claremont, California
The Law Offices of Scott Glovsky donated an Optelec ClearView+ machine to the Service Center for Independent Life in Claremont, CA. The machine is an auto-focus desktop video magnification system designed to assist people with low vision. It enables a user to enlarge materials to a more comfortable size or to change the high contrast viewing modes with a master dial.
Scott Glovsky said, “We are honored to support the great work that the Service Center for Independent Life (SCIL) does to help people live proud, independent lives.”
SCIL is a non-profit organization that works with people with disabilities of all ages. Since 1980, SCIL’s sphere of influence encompasses 22 cities in South East Los Angeles County, and the East San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys. Services include self-advocacy training, assistive technology, housing information and resources, independent living skills training, peer counseling, benefits planning, information and referral services, transition services, and more. All services are provided at no cost to consumers.
The goal of SCIL is to encourage and support people to make good choices and exercise control over their own lives while providing expanded access to information and resources to assist them in increasing their independence. SCIL works with anyone regardless of disability, race, gender, lifestyle, sexual orientation, or religious persuasion. 100% of SCIL’s staff and 65% of its Board of Directors are people with disabilities, giving the organization a unique insight into what their consumers face each day.
SCIL’s mission is “to empower all persons with any disability, in their quest for greater personal independence, and to advocate for a barrier-free society.”
Larry Grable, the Executive Director of SCIL, commented, “Thanks to contributions like this we are able to provide consumers and staff with the equipment they need to be able to live a safe and independent life. Pictured is LaKenya Pitchford, our System Change Advocate who is now able to view documents she was unable to see before receiving this donation. SCIL staff and employees appreciate the donations that we receive.”
