CWDR works one-on-one with youth to develop and achieve independent living goals such as preparing for employment, college, learning how to get around the community independently, and becoming a strong self-advocate. All services are individualized to reflect each participant’s goals. The CWDR staff also works with youth to connect with community resources and apply for other services. Transitioning to adulthood for youth with disabilities can be complicated. As an organization staffed and board-directed by a majority of people with disabilities ourselves, we understand the needs of youth and their families, and the professionals supporting them in ways that other agencies may not.
