How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

The initial impact of the WWRC Foundation was to secure funds that allowed the Woodrow Wilson Rehabilitation Center to construct Harold G. Watson Student Activities Building and the William A. Chashett Chapel. Recent campaigns supported the creation of the accessible STAR Trail, replacement of the WWRC's auditorium curtains, and providing an exercise physiologist for the student Fitness Center. The Foundation also manages a recycling program for medical equipment, providing wheelchairs and scooters for students, as well as electronic equipment for the Center's vocational and career development program. Our current goals are aligned to meet the strategic needs of the Center, including securing funding for Fitness Center staff, building rehabilitation, and transportation for students.

Program 1

Ride to Work with CATS

The program seeks to expand access to public transportation for students at the Woodrow Wilson Rehabilitation Center, allowing individuals with disabilities to gain access to jobs, internships and off-site educational classes. In addition, students learn how to read bus schedules and how to use public transportation, both vital skills when getting to work once they are at home.

Program 2

Drive to Success

Drive to Success provides cars and vans with assistive technology to the Woodrow Wilson Rehabilitation Center driving program, allowing Virginians with disabilities to learn to drive so that they will have transportation to work and independence. Participants in the driving program are either learning to drive again after an injury or have never before been able to drive because they cannot learn in a traditional classroom setting. There is no charge to participate in the WWRC driving program--but there is a significant waiting list for the program.
