WENDELL FOSTERS CAMPUS FOR DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES INC
February 21, 2011

I am not directly involved with WFC but I have had the wonderful experience of attending fund raisers and other special events, and have met many of the staff and therapists there. The thing that stands out most in my mind about my experiences with WFC is the way they celebrate the lives of the people they serve and the passion that drives them. An example of that passion is the creation of the sensory park. I learned from the staff how the park started with a small, "I wonder if we could...", that turned into a unified brainstorm among them with no limitations! The result was a huge plan to make a park that enhances the lives of the resedents and individuals served by WFC, and then to have a big celebration and dedication of the park. My family and I attended the dedication and we were all touched by the love, the unity, and the passion of everyone involved. The spirit of the people, staff and clients is definately contagious. As I said before, I am not directly involved with WFC but I hope to be in the near future. I would truely be blessed to be a part of their mission.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing their story of the developement of the sensory park and attending the dedication celebration.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

There is nothing I know of to change, but I do hope that the special needs program in my business plan will become yet another tool used by WFC to enhance the lives of their clients.

MY ROLE:
General Member of the Public & I am trying to start a new business that would include a program for special needs individuals. I've met with staff and therapists at WFC about my plan and hope to work with them some day soon.
