-- Whitten Center Parents' Club
The Whitten Center Parents' Club (WCPC) was established in 1953 and is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity . This supportive and active group of parents, relatives and volunteers works very hard to ensure that the excellent quality care provided by the South Carolina Department of Disabilities and Special Needs is maintained. Through WCPC's efforts, we help to monitor programs, protect human rights and raise money to provide many extras that enhance the lives of the residents who live and work at Whitten Center.
Whitten Center was founded by B. O. Whitten, M.D. in 1920. It is a state run, residential treatment facility for approximately 240 people with developmental disabilities and special needs. A full compliment of continuous services are provided. Among these services are:
* Comprehensive Medical Care * Communication Services
* Visually Impaired Services * Program Services
* Education Services * Pastoral Services
* Habilitation Services * Leisure Services
* Vocational Services * Volunteer Services
