Welcome to Wildwood Programs



From Executive Director, Mary Ann Allen

This week is a week-long national celebration of the often unsung heroes in our field--the Direct Support Professionals whose commitment, skill, hard work, boundless creativity and amazing dedication help our loved ones with developmental disabilities to learn, grow, stay healthy and safe, and achieve their cherished goals, hopes and dreams throughout their lives.

This year, we have chosen "Wildwood's DSPs Are Out of This World" as the theme of our week-long celebration. Wildwood's Direct Support Professionals constantly go the extra mile, and morph from friend to counselor to job coach to residential support to transportation assistant to medication administrator to behavioral interpreter to a million other roles, all at a moment's notice and often several times each and every day! They don't travel in space ships, but they consistently accomplish the same kinds of life-altering feats for our loved ones, in real life, as our favorite imaginary characters from other galaxies do on screen and in script. They are amazing colleagues, co-workers and friends--truly the best, by any standard!!

Wildwood DSPs, we are grateful beyond words for your professionalism, for your unwavering commitment to our family members, and for the many sacrifices you make so that over 3,000 local children, adults and families living with developmental disabilities receive the supports they need to be active, productive and valued members of our communities. You are truly the heart and soul of Wildwood, and without you, we would not be able to meet the ever-changing needs of the individuals and families who turn to us for assistance.

Thank you from the bottoms of our hearts, for the critical role you play for all of us, and for everything that you do to make life happy, fulfilling and productive for the people and families we support !! Today, this week, and always, we celebrate, honor and give thanks for YOU!
