WWRC helped our son obtain a driver’s license, confidence, a new-found sense of independence, and skills that helped him secure a job with CSC. He drives himself to work every day and has worked at the same job for over two years now. Alexander recently won an award for his performance at CSC. The State of Virginia and WWRC have provided him with the ability to be employed and self-supporting. He gives back to the community by serving as a Fairfax County election officer, and he gives blood to the American Red Cross.
