Call for more information or to discuss if a program or service will be a good fit. If so, an appointment will be made with an Independent Living Adviser who will start the intake process; during the intake, goals will be established and client information will be gathered.
Please arrive on time for the intake appointment.
Because CPWD is a consumer controlled organization (51% of the Board and staff are people with disabilities), requests for services MUST come from the individual or parent, NOT a referral source.
