ILCHV facilitates support groups based upon consumer need. Organized by staff who have personal experience of disability, they provide a structure which encourages sharing, support, and problem solving among group members. At times the groups will bring in expert speakers who may add additional information to the discussion. Groups very by length, focus, disability, age, and other factors; groups have included: post-polio, women, men, mental health empowerment, blindness, and youth.
If you are interested in participating or helping to start a support group, call ILCHV and ask to speak to Karen Garofallou, Director of Programs and Services.
