What Is LiveAbility?
LiveAbility is a non-profit organization serving 13 counties in Northern WV. We are driven by the philosophy of “Independent Living”, and our mission is simple: We help Mountaineers living with disability gain or maintain independent lives and become or remain productive members of a fully inclusive society. Find out more about our organization below.
We Know What It’s Like
LiveAbility is staffed largely by West Virginians who live with a disability. We understand the challenges Mountaineers face, and we have solutions to help.
LiveAbility is an all-inclusive advocacy & resource center for people with disabilities and the communities in which they live. LiveAbility is NOT a social service agency. What’s the difference? We don’t do for people; we do a lot with people. We want our consumer to be independent, not dependent on us for their livelihood. We do all that is possible to ensure that consumers have the skills and information they need to make informed choices and assist communities to better meet the needs of their citizens with disabilities.
