About Us

Over 15 years ago a group of local parents of children with disability had a vision, a life where their children could mature as adults living in their own homes as part of the community, where they could truly have “a lifestyle of choice and opportunity”. Midwest Community Living was formed as an organisation to bring that vision to life.

MWLCA is a Geraldton based not for profit organisation led by a board of local people who are passionate about the community and the people who we support. Midwest Community Living provide a range of supports for people with disability so they can live in their own homes with back up and support of a local organisation. We currently manage 19 houses through the Community Disability Housing Program (CDHP), and support many people with disability in the Midwest to live a lifestyle of choice and opportunity.

We are experienced in working alongside people with disability as well as supporting families who care for a person with disability. We have dedicated coordinators to assist you in meeting your needs or assisting you in planning support for the person who you care for.

Our mission is to enrich the lives of people with disability and their families by supporting choices and creating opportunities to live as part of the community.

Getting the right support

At Midwest Community Living we aim to create a “lifestyle of choice and opportunity” for people with disability. We work with people with disability and their families to support and encourage them to reach their full potential, their individual goals and assist to realise and work towards their dreams and aspirations. We promote community living for people with disability and support people to live as independently as possible as a valued member of their community.

We offer services 24 hours a day 7 days a week and cater for all ages – children to adults. We have a diverse team of support workers who are passionate about offering quality services to people with disability and their families.

One size doesn’t fit all! At MWCLA we get to know you, ask you about your likes / dislikes and we support you to live the lifestyle that you choose. We will assist you to choose a support person who has similar interests and who would be someone who will encourage and help you meet your goals. You have the first and last say in who supports you.
