What We Do
As a peer-driven, community-based non-profit WILC empowers people with disabilities to lead self-directed lives in the community through advocacy, training and referral to resources that promote independent living.
WILC provides a wide spectrum of non-residential and non-medical services to persons of all ages with all disabilities, diverse and underserved populations. In all services provided, WILC will continue to promote personal awareness, personal responsibility, self-reliance, recovery, self-advocacy, positive self-image, and self-determination and self-sufficiency in a culturally appropriate manner.
