The purpose of SICIL's Personal Assistant Referral and Training Program is to provide services which are critical to consumers who rely on personal assistants (PA's) to do the chores that they are unable to do for themselves, in order to maintain their community living status. The PA staff will also assist consumers who have been unjustly denied Home Services or have experienced cuts in their Home Services Program.

Basic skills training is available in both group and individual formats to any person wishing to develop or retain PA skills. Upon request, a list of qualified PA's is provided to any consumer who wishes to hire an assistant.
