About Walton Options for Independent Living, Inc

Since 1994, Walton Options has provided services and resources to help people with all types of disabilities live independently within the community. As a private, non-profit, non-residential Center for Independent Living (CIL), we serve 16 counties in Georgia and 10 counties in South Carolina. We believe all persons including those with disabilities, should be able to participate in their community. At Walton Options, we promote equality, inclusion and independence though Personal Choice, Community Access, Education and Employment. Our goal is to help each person on their personal journey to independence to find and utilize the necessary, available resources. As an extension of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), The OH YEA! Program reaches youth as they look to the future in school and beyond. We do this through: Entrepreneurial Skills Training Financial Planning Pre-Employment Skills Self-Determination Training Person-Centered Planning Self-Advocacy Skills Training
