The heart and soul of Independent Living is being in control of your own life.

WILS functions as an independent living resource center to help you gain that control by providing independent living skills training and combining it with daily living skills. We empower individuals with disabilities and provide techniques so they can participate fully in daily living, recreational and/or social opportunities, and vocational or volunteering activities.
