    About Us

    In 1963, CWI began as Community Workshop, Inc. serving a humble contingent of six community individuals in a sheltered employment setting. Fifty years later, CWI changed its name to Community, Work and Independence, Inc. to better reflect the range of programs and services offered. Today CWI assists nearly 900 individuals at nearly 19 locations across three counties. In addition, the not-for-profit organization has grown to become one of the largest employers in the area with over 322 employees and an annual operating budget of nearly $19 million resulting in a substantial impact on the region’s economy.

    CWI has worked to bring about positive change and hope for many. A cornerstone in communities across the four-county region, CWI has transformed the lives of numerous individuals with disabilities and other barriers. CWI offers a myriad of services to meet the needs of people who are developmentally and learning disabled, medically frail, brain injured, economically disadvantaged and individuals with other challenges. CWI supports these individuals who strive to be productive and meaningful members of their local community by building a foundation which allows individuals to springboard toward a higher level of independence. Independence may equate to CWI helping individuals find and sustain employment, become involved with volunteer opportunities, partake in recreational opportunities, learn independent living skills, and promote self-advocacy, to name a few.
