About WACA

The Washtenaw Association for Community Advocacy (ACA) was one of the first organizations in Michigan to advocate for people with developmental disabilities and their families.

In 1949, a group of parents organized to seek equal education rights for their children with disabilities.  They believed, as we do today, that each person, regardless of their disability, deserves access to authentic power and control over their life.
