The Foundation: Founded in 1975, Michael and Dottie Weiblinger along with their kids opened their home and their hearts to an individual living with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. This individual became the first addition to the Weiblinger’s extended family and lived with them for many years. Thus, the foundation of family based principles was set.
The Growth: In 1997, the company purchased a second home to grow this blended family through respite care for the IDD community. Over the next 5 years, their ‘family’ continued to grow, and positive feedback from families of the individuals remained a constant; and so, in 2002 the decision to move to residential care was made and thus the birth of Weiblinger’s Residential Care, Inc. (WRC) officially began.
The Company Today: With a total of more than 20 licensed sites, 33 individuals served and over 100 employees, WRC’s family has grown and evolved over the last 45 years. In July of 2020, new leadership has emerged and is eager to continue to build and grow the WRC family well into the future.
