CILMTN provides persons with disabilities opportunities to be self advocates, make their own decisions regarding living arrangements, means of transportation, employment, social and recreational activities, as well as other aspects of everyday life.

Specifically, we...

  • Teach consumers to use technological equipment and software (please inquire about loaner equipment)

  • Partner with area businesses and other agencies  to promote equal access through education and advocacy activities

  • Explain how working will impact SSI or SSDI benefits

  • Mentor in a peer to peer method

  • Inform the public of important, upcoming disability-related events      

Open Monday-Friday, 8am-4pm

The Center for Independent Living of Middle Tennessee (CILMTN) serves a multi-county area in the central portion of Tennessee. This area includes Davidson, Cheatham, Wilson, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, and Williamson Counties.

GoBabyGo! Music City

GoBabyGo! Music City is not only our fastest growing program, but also one of the most rewarding for us to be involved in!

Mr. Deakins

After 3 long months of advocating for her father and researching home modification companies, The CIL was able to help Stacy and her father finance a new wheelchair ramp!


That's the smile of someone whose long wait for a place to call home is finally over! Congratulations, Martez!
