Staff in 2020

The staff at MWCIL are experts on the available services, skills and advocacy  needed to support and promote independent living. Most have personal experience with disabilities, and understand the challenges that people with disabilities might encounter. Counselors and Coordinators work one-on-one so that consumers have all the information they need to make their own best choices. Independent Living Coordinators work on long term goals. Options Counselors work on a short term basis to provide support and information so that individuals can remain in the community.

“Your people at the CIL must come to understand that their job is to provide Permission, Encouragement and Support. That is it. No less and no more. They can do it. Each is capable. But they gotta wanna.” —Roland Sykes, 2004
