WWRCF Mission, Vision & Values

Since 1960, we have supported the Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center, the first state-owned and operated comprehensive rehabilitation center in the nation. 


Our Mission

To raise funds and secure resources to support vocational rehabilitation at the Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center leading to increased independence and employment of Virginians with disabilities.

Our Vision

We envision a Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center with abundant funding to sustain an exceptional vocational rehabilitation experience, preparing Virginians with disabilities for gainful employment so that they can enjoy dignity and economic independence.

Our Values

  • Inclusiveness: We believe all individuals have the right to employment and independence, regardless of their disability. This belief translates into compassion for WWRC clients and a commitment to our work.
  • Innovation: We seek an effective and diverse leadership committed to seeking new ideas and approaching our work with flexibility, enthusiasm, urgency and an entrepreneurial spirit.|
  • Integrity: We conduct our work in an ethical, professional, honest and transparent manner, preserving the intent of our donors’ charitable goals and holding ourselves accountable to our commitments and for our words and actions.
  • Philanthropy: We believe what we do makes a difference and seek to inspire others, helping them to realize their philanthropic goals and making giving easy, effective and enduring.

To be honest, the Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center has changed me a lot as a person. The staff is very nice, and the instructors are amazing. At first I thought I wasn’t going to like the school. But, once I went there, for the first time in high school, I fell in love with it. I would really recommend it to anyone that is in high school or already graduated from high school and really wants to know what type of job they want to do in the future.
