Community Inclusion Services


Greater inclusion benefits everyone

What We Do

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

WID works to eliminate barriers to achieving the full inclusion of people with disabilities by addressing and influencing systems, policies, and tools.  Our focus for U.S. federal, state, and local systems and agencies includes the below offerings.

Inclusive Employment Tools and Technical Assistance

Our whole community approach identifies competitive integrated employment as the main means of community inclusion that is vital to moving people with disabilities out of poverty.

From disability benefits and financial health to technical assistance in federal and state directives, our comprehensive tools, curriculum, and services support self-determination, self-advocacy, job exploration, and other priorities that assist people with disabilities to become income producers, savers, and asset builders – moving out of poverty into full participation in community life.
