Community Services


Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program

Offers a unique approach to empower individuals with differing abilities to customize the personal care services they need with their own personal assistants and to choose how and when care is provided. CWI acts as a guide and fiscal intermediary in conjunction with Warren, Washington, and Essex County Department of Social Services (DSS) and various Managed Care organizations.

Individual Support Services

Arranges financial assistance for individuals with disabilities in the form of a rent subsidy to enable their independent living and prepare them for progressive autonomy.

Community Services

Designed for individuals living on their own or with family. CWI facilitates services to maximize individuals’ independence in activities of daily living both in their home and in the community. Each individual’s personal interests, needs and abilities are reflected in the services provided. This service is available to be self-directed to the individual and/or their family.

Respite Services

This is a service provided to primary family caregivers living with a family member with a developmental disability. Respite provides a break from caregiving for the family members while ensuring the individual’s needs are met, both at home and in the community. This service is available to be self-directed by the individual and/or their family.

Transition Services

Guiding individuals from adolescence to adulthood, CWI assists high school students with disabilities and their families to understand and explore realistic prospects for future employment, day program or residential services, vocational or volunteer training or further education. Services are contracted directly with school districts and are provided to individuals primarily in the school-based setting.
