Growing up with a brother with autism, Zach Lillo explains, “it has been a passion of mine to work in disability services for as along as I can remember.” During his BSW program he chose to work with United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) in their Support Broker division. He credits his field instructors Josh Lapin and Stefanie Primm for “challenging our field unit to think uniquely on current issues in the disability community, while keeping it fun and engaging.”
After graduation, Zach began his present position at Living our Visions Inclusively (LOV Inc.). LOV, a family-led organization started by a group of eight families in Madison has grown to serve hundreds of families in the state, working to “support them to identify solutions to barriers that are unique to them rather than offering a one size fits all solutions.”
Zach is leading LOV’s expansion of its Building Bridges Program Project to the Milwaukee area. There he will assist individuals with disabilities and their families, to build “fulfilling, community centered lives.”
