Independent Living Specialist
Hello, my name is Janice Ornelas. I am an (ILS) Independent living specialist for SCIL.
I have been with SCIL for 3 years now and I love what I do to help others and the disability community.
We strive to help our consumers, and do so by helping them accomplish their goals in life.
I provide them with I&R, advocacy, peer support, and help them with their independent living skills goals such as
locating low income housing, employment, going back to school, etc.
Aside from that, I also do transitioning. I assist with transitioning out of nursing home facilities, youth transitioning,
and college and career planning to help prepare my consumers for an independent and successful life.
I work to provide my consumers the most support and all the help I possibly can.
