CDR is a membership organization of persons with disabilities that operates a Center for Independent Living (CIL). Based in West Haven, Connecticut, the Center for Disability Rights advocates for people with disabilities and their issues on a local, state-wide, and national level. We also provide services to individuals and their families, as well as technical assistance and community education to businesses, government, and members of the community.

For individuals with disabilities, our service area extends from Milford and runs up the Connecticut Shoreline to Old Saybrook and Old Lyme; up to Middletown and Portland, and down through Meriden to the lower Naugatuck Valley. We also have four sister Centers for Independent Living in other parts of the state.
