I grew up in the West Valley region since childhood and only discovered WVCS 5 years ago when I started working here. I never knew the agency existed or about it's services and in the last 5 years have learned more about my community that I did growing up in it. Families in need in the West Valley region are lucky to have an agency nearby that serves them and is able to provide services that are hard to find elsewhere. WVCS strives to provide help in a caring and respectful manner. I have watched the agency grow by leaps and bounds in the past few years and am proud of the number of services we are able to offer.
