The Worcester County Developmental Center is an organization that strives to empower individuals with intellectual disabilities. We work with individuals to help them achieve their highest level of independent work and living. We do this by focusing on meaningful employment and residential living programs.
The main goal of the WCDC is to provide a path in which our clients can work towards meaningful employment. This will lead to their success, independence, and overall self worth. The WCDC provides meaningful employment support in a variety of ways. We help our clients learn skills relevant to the jobs they can earn and help with job placement with employers in the community.
Some of the programs we offer our clients include
- Catering & Restaurant Work
- Linen Service
- Inner Ocean Soap Company
The Residential Services provided by the Center include both supervised homes and staffed by trained counselors, and individual placements into IFC homes in the community. Each home offers a different level of supervision and training. This could range from 24 hours per day, to drop-in supervision of less than 9 hours per week. The goal of the Residential Program is to train individuals to become more independent in their daily living skills. The Program is constantly expanding to meet the ever-increasing needs of the community.
