Independent Living Programs
LiveAbility is a unit of the West Virginia Independence Network (WIN). Organizations in the WIN are community-based, cross-disability, non-profit organizations that are designed and operated by people with disabilities. Our approach to helping West Virginians living with disabilities is unique in that they operate according to a strict philosophy of consumer control, wherein people with all types of disabilities directly govern and staff the organization. IL Programs offered by LiveAbility include:

WV Assistive Technology System
The West Virginia Assistive Technology System (WVATS) works to enhance the lives of all West Virginia residents with disabilities, including older West Virginians and the families of people with disabilities.
