WILS is a consumer-driven, non-residential, 501(c)3 nonprofit resource center that serves people with disabilities and their families. Since 1997, WILS has been serving people of all ages, from children to seniors with disabilities in Benton, Henry, Johnson, Lafayette, Pettis, and Saline Counties.

As a Center for Independent Living (CIL), we empower persons with disabilities to take charge of their lives and to live as independently as possible. WILS staff and consumers work together to remove barriers and prejudices in society so that all individuals can live, can work and can enjoy all that their communities have to offer. Fifty-one percent of our staff and board of directors are persons with disabilities; we are who we serve.
