Woods Services is a 501(c)(3) non-profit multi-service population health management and advocacy organization that along with its five affiliate organizations provides innovative, comprehensive and integrated health, education, housing, workforce, behavioral health and case management services to more than 18,000 children and adults in the intellectual and developmental disability, child welfare, behavioral and brain trauma public health sectors who have complex and intensive medical and behavioral healthcare needs.
Woods applies evidenced-based treatments and a public health approach to develop innovative and individualized supports that empower people with disabilities and challenges to reach their highest potential.
Woods Services was 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.
