Mission:
Wendell Foster's Campus is a private non-profit organization that empowers individuals with developmental disabilities to realize their dreams and potentials.
Results:
This year, we offered outpatient speech, occupational, and physical therapy to over 400 children and adults throughout the region- helping them to develop the skills necessary to lead independent, meaningful lives! Our assistive technology and therapeutic outpatient services have given children voices to speak, wheelchairs and physical training to walk and move, and other life-changing abilities to make their lives more fulfilling.

For 83 people, we are "home." We provide assistance in daily life so that the people who choose to live here are given the best opportunities to live their dreams!
