WACOSA Receives $2,500 Grant From The Initiative Foundation.
Dollars provide all inclusive leadership enhancement course.


WAITE PARK, Minn. (Jan., 23rd, 2018) – WACOSA announced it is the proud recipient of a $2,500 grant from The Initiative Foundation.  The dollars will fund a collaborative effort between WACOSA and True Friends to provide a unique, customized training experience which focuses on enhancing leadership skills, and equipping new leaders in our communities. What makes this opportunity unique is that it includes WACOSA clients, who are individuals with disabilities, and are often not offered the same opportunities to develop leadership skills.

“WACOSA prides itself on remaining a cutting edge service provider that respects the choices of those we serve,” says Steve Howard, WACOSA’s Executive Director.  “I can honestly say that in my 32-year career, I have never witnessed a project that has more potential than this one.  This leadership event is designed to truly recognize the choices and contributions of all team members. It should leave a lasting appreciation for the value each of us contributes when we express our leadership gifts.”

This project was funded in part by the Initiative Foundation, a regional community foundation.
