WDOMI advocates for consumers at the individual level. We work to ensure that public and private programs and services are available to people with disabilities and that the programs encourage independent community living.

Staff will assist consumers in obtaining and maintaining benefits such as Social Security Disability, Supplemental Security Income, Medicaid, Medicare, Personal Assistance and other forms of public assistance. In addition, consumers are assisted in returning to the workforce by receiving Benefits Advisement explaining the Social Security Work Incentives and the Medicaid Buy In for working People with Disabilities.

WDOMI in collaboration with ACCES (vocational rehabilitation) will work to assist you in reaching your employment goals. WDOMI provides ACCES orientations on a regular basis where the consumer will learn about the services that ACCES offers and the steps to apply. To register for an orientation, please call the ACCES office in White Plains at 914-946-1313.
