Disability Peer Support Groups

Serving Benton, Henry, Johnson, Lafayette, Pettis and Saline County, Missouri.

One of WILS Five Core Services

Over half of WILS board and staff are made up of individuals with disabilities.  Members of our staff, board and volunteers, who have dealt successfully with their own challenges, draw upon their experiences to help you explore options, solve problems, learn new skills or analyze one’s situation and develop coping strategies.

WILS provides Peer Support in a consumer-directed manner over the telephone, in person at any WILS office or at a consumer’s living site. We can offer wisdom gained through personal experiences to inspire hope, support personal responsibility, promote understanding, offer education, and promote self-advocacy and self-determination.

Peer Support helps individuals with disabilities work to develop skills which allow them to live as independently as they desire. This includes finding work, or continuing their education, or raising a family, or voting, or whatever each individual deems valuable to their own life.

If you would like WILS to offer a specific type of Peer Support or Disability Group activities please drop us a line at info@w-ils.org.
