Community Inclusion Services

Greater inclusion benefits everyone

What We Do

We provide training, technical assistance, and online tools to help people with disabilities and those who support them make decisions about their employment, benefits, housing, and inclusive living goals.

WID addresses and influences systems, policies, and tools to remove barriers, so people with disabilities are fully included in all aspects of life. The programs listed below currently focus on U.S. federal, state, and local systems and agencies.

Note: For accessibility, we have written this page in plain language. For industry-specific terms, jargon, and other complex terms that needed to be included, we have linked them to our glossary.

Inclusive Employment Tools and Technical Assistance

We believe in a whole community approach, moving people with disabilities out of poverty and fully including them in the community. Competitive integrated employment is key to making that happen.

WID offers resources on disability benefits and financial health and makes disability-specific recommendations for federal and state directives. Our comprehensive tools, curricula, and services help people with disabilities to advocate for themselves, make confident choices,  explore jobs, earn and save money, and fully take part in community life.
