Volunteers are needed in 2015 as we continue to "grow" our garden program. The program provides CWTC consumers the opportunity to become involved at a variety of levels, but we need help! Garden or farming experience is not required! Whatever you can do is greatly appreciated. Get all the details HERE!
Periodically, we get asked if CWTC has a wishlist. Yes, we do! There are a list of items we use on a regular basis. Some we use at the main facility, while others may be used at one of our residential facilities throughout Central Illinois. You may be looking to donate a new item, or have a gently used item you would like to pass along. You can see the list by clicking here!
Celebrating 55 Years of Service!
Thanks to everyone who came out to the annual CWTC Bowl-A-Thon at Landmark Lanes. It was a huge success and everyone was throwing strikes. (Well, almost!) As you can tell, we all had a great time and can’t wait until next year! Thank you for your supports of adults with disabilities.

CWTC is continuing  to invite business and civic leaders in the community to visit CWTC and meet staff and consumers to see and hear about all of the programs and opportunities we offer. Our thanks to Don Shafer of Heartland Bank for coming in to take a tour of CWTC and seeing what we're all about. Don is pictured with Executive Director Patti Gratton.
