Active Re-Entry: Who We Are

Active Re-Entry became incorporated as a 501c3 in 1987. We serve the seven counties of Eastern Utah - from the Wyoming to the Arizona border - just over 27,000 square miles. The seven counties within the service district include - Dagget, Duchesne, Uintah, Carbon, Emery, Grand and San Juan. Active Re-Entry is a community based program which assists individuals with disabilities to achieve or maintain self-sufficient, productive lives and live independently within their own communities.

Centers for Independent Living (CIL's) are grass roots organizations and have four core services that they are required to provide: systems and individual advocacy, peer support, independent living skills, training and information referral. There are over 600 Centers throughout the nation, offering unique programs and services to meet their own community needs to the best of their ability as funding allows.

Our Programs & Services

Some of our programs include: help in attaining assistive technology (wheelchairs, ramps, emergency call systems); training for those losing their sight; caregiver and grief support groups; PAWS Animal Therapy Program; SCOODEO - a nationally recognized safety training program for those who have no other means of transportation than an electric scooter; PERKIE Travels - a coordinated cancer treatment transportation system to help get people to the Utah Valley area for their radiation treatment; nursing home diversion and transition programs and other programs.

Our Commitment

We are committed to promoting the rights, dignity, and quality of life for all persons with disabilities. We offer many services and resources or can help guide to other service providers. Please feel free wander around our website and to contact us.

There are five other CIL's in Utah and more information can be found about their programs under our resources section.
