Helping Individuals with Disabilities

Chicago is home to over 600,000 individuals with disabilities. Meals on Wheels Chicago embraces the unique challenges that many experience in their own homes and are committed to supporting efforts to improve accessibility and independence.

MOWC partners with the Chicago Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities (MOPD), whose mission is to promote total access, full participation, and equal opportunity through advocacy and direct services.

Meals on Wheels Chicago provides direct funding to MOPD’s Home Modification program, as well as the HDMID program that provides in-home meal delivery for individuals with disabilities.
