Since 1955, children, youth, and adult with developmental disabilities have counted on Wood Lane’s ability to provide excellent services and supports. Families created Wood Lane since no services were available before 1955. Since then, individuals and their families continue to be our focus in the provision of a wide array of services.
Community members, civic and religious groups, BGSU, as well as businesses have been a critical part of our success. In addition, we have an excellent relationship with school districts and other human service agencies to ensure options and choices in education, employment, recreation, and community involvement.
Within the heart of each community, EVERYONE belongs!
