The mission of White Apple Institute (WAI) is to provide vocational rehabilitation resources for Veterans and Non-Veterans with disabilities and/or emotional challenges, for their success in higher education and the workforce.




The vision of White Apple Institute (WAI) is to ensure that persons with Mental/Learning, Non-visible and Physical disabilities have equal access to educational and workforce opportunities.  With a choice to accept the challenge to change the image and perception of “dis-abled” to “differently-abled.”

At White Apple Institute we Connect, Educate and Support Adult Learners/Students and Veterans to overcome things that DISABLE them EMOTIONALLY and PSYCHOLOGICALLY and lead to BURNOUT and DROPOUT from SCHOOL, WORK, and LIFE!

  • Dr. Applewhite, “I, Thank You and the White Apple Institute so much for your help with my electric bill and counseling fees.  I passed my final exam because you helped me get accommodations for my Dyslexia so I could test without pressure of time. I’m going to nursing school in fall and working part-time as a Caregiver. I will not give up this time.”

  • Dr. Apple, “I tried to finish college so many times. I felt like a failure and my depression and the MS was getting worse. My marriage ended, I lost my job and I was ready to drop out of college again.  My mom heard about you and we listened to your radio show.  I’m so grateful to God that you and your staff helped me get accommodations so I could test out of my Math and English classes. I am now a college graduate and have the best job ever in the library. I love you all!!”

  • Dr. Applewhite “My attitude has really changed about using drugs since I started counseling with you.  I didn’t know how I was going to do online counseling since I was so stressed about losing my job because of my poor computer skills. But I was even more stressed about being a single mom because I wanted my kids to have a good life.  It was so hard to talk about my Bipolar Disorder and Fibromyalgia because most people would say I didn’t look disabled. Thanks for teaching me how to talk to my new boss about my disability accommodations.   I am now employed in my dream job. You really helped me build up my confidence and patience.”

I am doing well and I could say that my determination, courage and persistence is thanks to you since 7 years ago because you have been coaching me values of Life. I don’t feel so upset all the time and I trust in GOD and I know that He is The master of all. I also get my English level in progression thanks to you and all the staff of White Apple Institute.”
