A community for people living with intellectual and developmental disabilities

Thinking big, growing relationships, being bold about belonging, looking at the world through the eyes of others, nurturing everyday leaders, and creating connections – all activities and values of ConnectWC.

Parents, guardians, caregivers, self-advocates, business owners, entrepreneurs, artists and community members have formed a network to develop an inclusive community for people living with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The creation of the ConnectWC website is part of this mission.
