WCI was founded in Waltham, Massachusetts in 1974 with a mission to provide care and support services to people with intellectual disabilities. WCI’s first administrative office was on the 3rd floor of the Christ Episcopal church on Main Street in Waltham. Its first community home for eight individuals was a large victorian home. Those individuals now live in their own apartments with minimal support.
WCI provides residential, individual supports, in home supports and shared living to 136 individuals between the ages of 22 and 70 in 49 homes and apartments. WCI supports 86 individuals in employment, community based day and day habilitation services at two sites; Rumford Avenue and Common Street. We support people between the ages of 18 years to end of life.
