Our Key Values

WSC is committed to the full continuum of support for adults with Intellectual Disabilities, empowering them to make more meaningful life choices. We provide this by offering quality, outcome-based services which meet evolving stakeholders’ needs and bring together caring, engaged, and informed family members, friends, community partners, and employees to support these individuals.

Rights and Dignity

WSC encourages individuals in our services to be involved in the planning and implementation of the services, to practice self-advocacy and to engage in activities that enhance their personal well-being.


WSC supports community membership through relationship building, community partners and active participation in neighborhoods.

Personal Growth and Accomplishment

WSC promotes personal growth and accomplishment by providing supports that are person-centered and focus on an individual’s maximum potential.


WSC endeavors to exceed industry standards by maintaining a learning environment based on ABA/PBS based clinical supports, person-centered skills building, community inclusion and state of the art facilities.
