Wright Independent Life Options
Your Path. Your Plan. Your Life
Smart Family Foundation
Wright Individualized Supports in Housing was formed by Keldrick Wright of Maplewood, NJ, as an answer to the call to create WILO set out to provide a unique path where persons with disabilities could learn independent living skills such as social skills, laundry skills, community awareness and safety, cooking skills, personal care, wellness and other skills needed for one to enjoy life more independently. WILO is an approved NJ Medicaid Provider Agency.
WILO believes that every person, regardless of ability, has the right to be a part of the greater community and be viewed and treated as valued members of society. WILO believes in providing individuals who have disabilities with the skills and experiences to build confidence and promote community participation and inclusion.
WILO offers a variety of services and programs such as overnight respites, weekend travel and socialization, housing and other initiatives. As various program facets of WILO become available, we’ll be sure to update the website. For now, please check out the WILO Weekends tab to register for some weekend FUN!
