-- 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

First let me say that our Whitten Center Parents' Club Board wishes to thank the staff, parents, family members, friends and advocates for all the help before, during and after the 7th Annual Glenn Bledsoe Memorial Golf Tournament. This tournament could not have been successful without the wonderful team effort of the volunteers, the sponsors, the golfers and the country club staff. It was an amazing day and the weather turned out to be beautiful! 1st and 2nd place teams both donated their prize money back to the parents' club! DesMoines Trucking Team (Stan Coleman's Team ) won1st place and John King's team took 2nd place. A big thank you to both of these teams for their generosity!
Tara Glenn, Volunteer Services coordinator and her staff did an amazing job coordinating everything. Lots of hours by many folks were put into making this a successful tournament.
