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:


Community Living Services Program

LiveAbility’s Community Living Services Program (CLSP) assists individuals with disabilities to function more independently in their homes and communities. State Funding for the CLSP provides services such as:

  • Home Modifications
  • Assistive Technology
  • Communication Services
  • Vehicle Modification
  • Durable Medical Equipment


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.

By providing access to and help with the acquisition of assistive technology devices and services, WVATS can offer West Virginians with disabilities an opportunity for choice, control and independence at home, work, school, play, and in their neighborhoods.
