Southern Nevada Center for Independent
Located about one mile from the Las Vegas Strip, SNCIL has been in Southern Nevada since 1984. In 1995 SNCIL became a stand-alone Center for Independent Living and established a satellite office to serve the rural areas of Southern Nevada.
Differing from most organizations that serve people with disabilities, SNCIL is founded on the belief that independent living is about consumer control. Guided by the Independent Living and People First Philosophy, the majority of board, staff and volunteers are individuals with disabilities. We are here to help you adapt to living with your disability and pursue the life you want to live.
SNCIL is one of approximately 350 consumer directed Centers located throughout the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico and American Samoa funded by the Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Community Living.
3DPhotoWorks is committed to delivering accessible and inclusive images to the blind, disabled, and sighted communities. These transformative experiences allow for an intimate connection with a wide range of visual and graphic material. Images designed for touch provide the opportunity to acquire visual information independently, without relying on recorded descriptions or the interpretation of a sighted companion. Users can explore the depth and complexity of their favorite artworks and images, often for the first time.
Since 2008, the company has worked closely with the blind community to research and develop tactile technology. In 2021, 3DPhotoWorks, Tactile Image’s, the National Federation of the Blind, and Getty Images partnered to deliver more than 45 million images to the blind and disabled at museums, science centers, libraries, government agencies, and cultural institutions worldwide.
