Our Story

Wabash Center is a non-profit organization assisting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities or special needs to reach their fullest potential.

Founded in 1953, Wabash Center began when a class of 11 children began meeting as the Wabash School for the Exceptional. Parents came together to open doors of opportunity for their children who had abilities and talents to share.

As a premier organization serving those with disabilities, Wabash Center emphasizes potentials and possibilities by nurturing the abilities of individuals.

For some, it may be helping to master daily living skills to live independently. For many, it is providing an opportunity to join the workforce, making meaningful contributions to their own independence. For others, it is simply the opportunity to live in the community.

Our education programs have evolved, but our mission remains the same. Today’s programs open doors to independent living, employment, and community involvement.
