Woods is a leading advocacy and service organization for people with exceptional challenges, disabilities and complex needs.We were founded a century ago by visionary Mollie Woods with two simple goals – to advance the quality of life and standard of care for individuals with disabilities. She gained international recognition for her work in helping children with exceptional needs experience the joy of achievement and lead fulfilling lives.
Today, we’ve broadened her mission to serve people of all ages and levels of care with a unique model, The Exceptional Care Model that drives greater achievement for individuals – and best practices for the industry. Just as Mollie did over 100 years ago, we believe our mission and model are one in the same: Exceptional People. Fulfilling Lives.
Woods supports children and adults with disabilities or challenges to achieve their highest potential and independence through innovative and individualized approaches that promote learning and personal fulfillment.
We envision a world where an individual has opportunities and supports that promote self-determination, the joy of achievement and a fulfilling life.
