Since 1955, children and adults with developmental disabilities have counted on Wood Lane's ability to provide excellent services and support. Families created the original Wood Lane Parents Group since services were unavailable before that time. Over the years that original idea has grown into the vast array of services offered today to so many families. From birth to death, Wood Lane helps families take care of family members, teaches life skills, and prepares individuals to be healthy, safe and employable.
Wood County has been very generous over the years in its support of individuals with developmental disabilities. In the 13 years since the last levy, state funding has been cut by 48% and personal property tax has been cut by 50%. Enrollment has increased by 185%. Current funding no longer covers the costs of increased enrollment and needs. We truly believe Wood Lane has been fiscally responsible. As funding has been reduced they have been cutting costs, eliminating positions and some services while struggling to maintain quality direct care.
The Wood Lane Residential Parents Group appreciates past support and respectfully requests your continued support of Wood Lane by voting for the levy on Nov. 5.
