We believe that a person with a disability, whether physical or developmental, deserves dignity and self-respect.
A major source of income for PWAC is from the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) for waiver funding and the Armstrong-Indiana Behavioral and Developmental Health Program (BDHP). A second source of income is through the industrial subcontract work, which pays participant wages and supplements overhead expenses. Donations and grant monies are used (primarily) to purchase equipment used to further develop programming for our participants.
Individuals seeking services must have a diagnosed physical, emotional, or developmental disability that hinders them from independent employment in the community. Individuals must be 18 years of age and be able to independently care for hygiene needs and possess independent mobility skills.
