What We Do
Built on a foundation of family values, WRC ensures that each staff follows the mold to promote similar values when serving any of our residents.
It is important to provide a positive and trustworthy environment where the residents we serve can feel completely comfortable just being themselves. In doing so, we have seen substantial development in the ability to learn and grow both in the house and in the community. We take pride in this, building a solid core of staff members that do not work for a resident but rather alongside of them, helping with whatever it is they need.

At WRC we work to ensure that each of our Residents have a firm grasp on their financial Situation:

Their funds are monitored on a weekly basis to ensure that there is no misuse of funds, and also to ensure that inventory lists are kept current.

All major purchases and activities that our residents embark in are made by our Financial team in conjunction with their Rep Payee, generally paid for upfront by WRC.
- Social Security: Each Resident receives with SSA (Social Security Award) or SSI (Social Security Income) which determines the amount of benefit they receive; these letters are kept on file and up to date.
