Social Integration

Intentional Communities of Washtenaw (ICW) strongly believes in the reduction of isolation that those with developmental disabilities often experience. One of the greatest ways to reduce isolation is through social connections that cultivate relationships with others in the community. Reducing isolation for individuals with developmental disabilities improves their overall quality of life and helps to promote new relationships and skills. ICW provides social activities each month to individuals living in our communities and also to the community at-large. These activities have proven time and again to allow individuals to meet in a safe environment so as to enjoy the beauty of friendships over time.  Families, friends and advocates of individuals are invited and encouraged to attend these social events together to learn more about ICW and about those people that make up the ICW “community.”

If you or a loved one are interested in getting involved in ICW social activities, complete the Information Request form at the bottom of the page to receive a Welcome Email from the ICW Program Manager.
