Your donation can help us celebrate “homecoming” for people with disabilities

What do you think of when you hear the word “homecoming”?  A soldier’s return, a dance, a college alumni gathering?

For people with disabilities who have been “placed” in institutions, excluded from neighborhoods, and denied education and work opportunities, “homecoming” means something different. It means stability.  It means working and coming home to a place that you can call your own. It means living with dignity, freedom, respect, support and opportunity.

Your support of Disability Rights Wisconsin helps make this definition of homecoming a reality.

At Disability Rights Wisconsin, we’ve been helping people with disabilities celebrate homecomings for more than 35 years.  We’ve advocated for more than 7000 individuals this year.

We urgently need your help.  Celebrate homecoming with us by contributing to DRW today!  Your generosity makes possible the advocacy, education, and policy work that helps make homecomings happen.

It’s easy to donate.  You can click here to DONATE.  Or you can click on the red DONATE NOW button in the upper right hand corner of this webpage.  Thank you!
