We believe that students have the potential to achieve all of their aspirations when they are in an environment that does not marginalize.
The MetroWest Center for Independent Living was created by people with disabilities seeking full integration into society. MWCIL enhances the full participation of persons with disabilities in the community. The MWCIL:
Independent Living is a philosophy and a worldwide movement by people with disabilities for self-determination, self-respect and equal opportunities. All individuals have the right to choose the services that they want to receive and to make decisions about how to live their lives.
The purpose of the Independent Living Movement is to remove barriers for people with disabilities. People with disabilities are entitled to have the same opportunities for raising families of their own, getting an education and working.
Centers for Independent Living exist throughout Massachusetts. Services are available to anyone with a disability. There is no cost for services. The MWCIL serves individuals with disabilities within a catchment area of 26 Towns in MetroWest Massachusetts who have needs, goals, or barriers to becoming more independent.
