What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Day Program & Vocational Training

The WCDC Day Program operates as a Day Habilitation and Vocational Training Facility. Everyone is given the opportunity to excel at activities that are suited to his or her skills and interests, as determined at the person's Individual Plan (IP) meeting. If an individual chooses to change his/her activities, he/she may do so by communicating the choice to the program coordinator assigned. While being trained, they earn wages in accordance with State and Federal regulations. Pre-Vocational training is a big part of the day program. Work opportunities are provided in the following capacity:

Janitorial

Horticultural/Greenhouse

Food Services

Contractual Work

Lawn Care

WCDC is always interested in contracting with businesses who may need assistance with bulk mailing, 1-8 piece assembly and/or sorting tasks, and packaging/disassembling work.

Population(s) Served

The Food Sevices Program provides employment training and community integration for disabled employees. Currently WCDC is networking with a private school and school lunches are prepared and served by WCDC disabled employees. The focus of this program is to train individuals in food service and to encourage and support them as they seek additional employment opportunities in the food service industry. WCDC seeks partnerships/contracts with other schools and agencies that are in need of this type of service in order to acomplish the following:

To provide training and opportunity for productive work in a real life setting for adults with disabilities

To educate and integrate the disabled population to their communities

To provide a service as a member of the community

Population(s) Served

WCDC's Residential Program operates a variety of homes within surrounding neighborhoods and communities. Supports for each residence are individualized and range from as needed in-home assistance to 24-hour supervision. The Residential Program recognizes and encourages persons with developmental disabilities to have options, skills and choices regarding where and with whom they live with in the community.

Population(s) Served

The Supported Employment Program provides individuals the assistance to find and maintain employment in the community. Services include career assessments, pre-employment training, and job placement through the WCDC Job Club. Job coaching support is provided with a job coach working beside the trainee as needed. As the trainee becomes more skilled, the job coach gradually decreases support. To become a self-sufficent worker is the goal of every supported employment individual. Help is always available to the worker and employer, as the Center never loses touch with the individual.

Population(s) Served

Individual Support Services (ISS) provides flexible and dynamic assistance to individuals in order to enable participation within the community and adapts to meet the individual's current needs. Support Services include, but not limited to, monetary assistance, transportation, grocery shopping, job coaching, budgeting, counseling, and assistance with other daily activities, development of relationships, respite and participation in social activities. Support Services are identified within the individual's program.
