Wilson Workforce and Rehabitation Center (WWRC) (Virginia)

Description:

The Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center (WWRC) Campus Community offers a highly integrated set of comprehensive services that spans twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, to ensure that Agency clients receive an array of services that promote independence, self-sufficiency and employment skills.

To be admitted to WWRC and retain enrollment, Center clients must not present a danger to themselves or others.  Clients who require supportive training, socialization, intervention and training to improve their behavior in the classroom and in the community have access to a continuum of services at WWRC. It is reasonable to expect some clients to present social behaviors that require remediation as part of the rehabilitation experience. Family members and funding sources expect the rehabilitation center to provide a safe campus where behavioral standards are monitored and exceptions are addressed. Reflective of its workforce readiness/training and return-to-work mission, WWRC reinforces the guiding values of self-control, respect, and safety in its Student Code of Conduct. Behavior interventions and disposition of Student Code of Conduct violations are designed to be supportive and therapeutic in nature, with the goal of employment-focused rehabilitation, while ensuring a safe ‘living and learning’ environment for the entire campus community.
