Woodhouse is a non-profit organization that provides both residential and day training services for adults with severe to profound Intellectual Disabilities, compounded with other physical and sensory disabilities. The facility was born in 1983 when a large state institution was closed due to the amount of abuse and neglect that was happening there. In fact, there are people who moved in when Woodhouse opened who still live here today. When our folks became adults, their disability did not magically disappear, but most all of their funding did. On that day they stopped being “cute” and started being “a burden to the State”. This is why they need your help so much.
At Woodhouse, our mission is to impact and enrich the lives of individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities by promoting independence, encouraging self-actualization and creating a healthy environment. Each of our participants begin their year with an Interdisciplinary Team of physicians and therapists helping them to decide what they want to learn and accomplish; what will make them happier and more independent; where and with whom they want to be. Then Woodhouse helps them to meet their goals because it is our priority to teach them skills to be as independent, interested and involved as possible so that they can be contributing members to their community.
Our goal is to generate funds to assist with the refubishment of our residents home. But.... that is expensive and we are requesting some funding assitance. Can you help us?
