Living Well in the Community
The Oregon Office on Disability and Health will be offering the Living Well in the Community (LWIC) program across the state, beginning in fall of 2022. LWIC is a ten-week program focused on supporting individuals with disabilities in fostering self-reliance and confidence. Participants of LWIC gain valuable skills in goal setting, healthy reactions and communication, building support networks, eating well, being physically active, and advocating for themselves. To reach individuals with disabilities across the state with training, OODH will be partnering with Centers for Independent Living (CILs) and other community-based organizations supporting individuals with mobility disabilities or intellectual and developmental disabilities. Organizations partnering with OODH will receive compensation for staff time, and support from OODH staff for implementation (including, if desired, virtual co-facilitation of the program). The LWIC course is free for participants. Please contact us at email@example.com if you are interested in learning more about how your organization could partner with OODH to provide the LWIC program.
