WACOSA’s mission is to provide individuals with disabilities the opportunity to work and live in their community and reach their full potential. Employers who partner with WACOSA receive not only the benefit of a reliable and cost-effective work force, but the knowledge that they are building community through social responsibility. To continue to build these types of job opportunities, we rely on the generosity of our many friends and donors. From donations to utilizing WACOSA’s services you can make a difference and help break down the barriers that adults with disabilities face every day.
