Until there is equity, we stand in the gap and provide assistance through information, advocacy, education, support, and transition services.

Dedicated To
Long-term Success


If you’re like us, you want to be an engaged community member dedicated to the long-term success of all of the citizens across the state, regardless of their physical ability. Supporting an organization with experience and credibility in the disabilities community seems like the right thing to do.

However, whether it is for yourself, or a loved one, you see that there are some big gaps that need to be filled in order to achieve equity. GSIL provides the services, supports and programming to fill those gaps so people with disabilities live full and complete lives.
