Wright Independent Life Options (WILO NJ)

As an answer to the call to create housing options for adults with Special Needs, Keldrick Wright formed WILO NJ in Maplewood NJ in October of 2014.

WILO NJ set out to provide an 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 to enjoy life more independently. WILO NJ is an approved New Jersey Medicaid Provider Agency.
