Welcome to SILCNH.org
I would like to welcome you to the Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) website. We hope that you will find this site informative and helpful.
SILC is the Statewide Independent Living Council whose mission is to provide leadership and advocacy in support of the independent living philosophy for persons living with disabilities. The Council is made up of individuals who believe that individuals living with a disability should have the opportunity to live independently within their communities.
If you would like more information about the SILC or are interested in becoming a board member, please feel free to contact us. SILC looks forward to continuing to be the lead in independent living in the State of New Hampshire!
