When I first came to Carson, staff members at the Rural Center for Independent Living (RCIL) and Do Drop In Center helped me to find housing. Dee Dee, the director, went with me to tour apartments. I immediately found one that suited my needs, and she helped me to convince a landlady that, though I don't make much money, I would still be an upstanding tenant. I got the place! I'm very happy with the assistance from Do Drop In/RCIL - I was treated with respect and dignity and given optimism. I get the impression that Dee Dee and the other staff and volunteers sincerely care about their clients.

My line of work is related to the work done at RCIL/Do Drop In, so I've visited several times since then. Over the past two years, Dee Dee and others at the RCIL/Do Drop In have trained me as an advocate and introduced me to other agencies and advocates in the community.

I'd like to add that clients have access to a clean, fully stocked galley and a comfortable living room while they wait for expert housing and advocacy services. It's a safe, clean, peaceful place to get warm in the winter or cool off in the summer. Services are available to people who are in need of housing and to individuals with disabilities. As far as the disability scene goes, it's remarkable how this Center for Independent Living is so inclusive; anyone with any disability is equally eligible for services. At the RCIL/Do Drop In, people with and without disabilities are treated the same. If you choose to disclose your disability, you'll still be treated as a unique individual (they don't stereotype people by diagnosis).

The Great!
