The Silicon Valley Independent Living Center is a non-profit organization located in downtown San Jose that provides services for people with all types of disabilities. For example, they offer in-takes, housing, personal care attendants, peer counseling and all the main core services that Independent Living Centers offer. During a rough time of transition and adjustment in my life, I had received information that they provided rental assistance. I was truly grateful and appreciative of their Management team for going above and beyond my expectations. Earlier this summer, they held their Third Annual West Coast Disability Pride Parade and Festival in Mountain View, CA. They have built a CommUnity of Social Justice. It is empowering and inspiring to see their dedication and commitment every day. All the Staff and Volunteers stepped up and supported this amazing day and cause! I volunteered my time by helping organize, plan, emcee the parade and performed. It was an opportunity of a lifetime. SVILC is a valuable assest to the disability community, city of San Jose, Santa Clara county and surrounding areas. They are my heroes and have made a lasting footprint in the lives of people with disabilities including mine.
