WILS is one of Missouri’s 22 Centers for Independent Living (CIL) and we have served individuals with disabilities in Benton, Henry, Johnson, Lafayette, Pettis, and Saline Counties since 1997. As a non-profit resource center, we offer programs like WILS Bucket List Club, that encourage active participation, adventure, and learning.WILS Bucket List Club
There are many additional ways you can connect with WILS such as volunteer groups, benefits checks, Medicare options counseling, ramp builds, and our popular care at home program. Home and Community Based Services are important to us because we believe that you should have a choice in where and how you live.Stay Connected
Our Consumer Directed Services program is designed to help persons with disabilities be in control of their care and remain as independent as possible in their own homes so they do not have to live in a care facility. In order to qualify for these services, one must be on Missouri Medicaid, be able to self-direct their own care, and have a physical disability that limits activities of daily living such as housekeeping, meal preparation, bathing, grooming, and essential transportation.
