Volunteer Opportunities

Many individuals serve as volunteers at WNC Group Homes. The primary areas include:

Board of Directors

Board Committees

Human Rights Committee

The Human Rights Committee is charged with monitoring the protection of the rights of our residents in three areas. The committee monitors the use of all restrictive program interventions and behavior control medications, and acts as a resident advocate during investigations of allegations of abuse, neglect or exploitation. The committee is made up of community members who have a good understanding of the support needs of persons with Developmental Disabilities and Autism. This committee meets each month for a review of each group home (on a rotating quarterly basis). The committee provides recommendations and feedback, as appropriate, to the Psychological Associate and the QIDP with regards to the information shared during each meeting session.
