The UILC was established in 1981 and opened its doors to serve people with disabilities in April of 1982. The UILC was the first Center for Independent Living in the State of Utah. The Center was founded on the belief that all people matter and people with disabilities should have the same opportunity and civil rights afforded to them as everyone else. These beliefs continue to be core beliefs of the UILC.
The UILC is a non-residential not-for-profit agency that provides life skill services to people of all ages and all disabilities, assisting them to gain independence in their homes, families and communities.
