Warren Achievement School was founded in 1961, in Monmouth, Illinois, by a group of citizens led by Helen Bersted and Lou Ebersole, as a one-room school for children with developmental disabilities. Through the years, Warren Achievement Center has grown. In 1969, our sheltered workshop was opened on South Main Street. In 1972, WAC added the Adult Residential program.
Today, Warren Achievement Center has Early Intervention services for infants and children, several Residential homes, a sheltered workshop, Community Employment, Respite Services, and Transportation for senior citizens, persons with disabilities, and the general public.
Warren Achievement Center provides many opportunities for persons with developmental disabilities to learn and be active members of the community. Staff are employed and specially trained to provide positive experiences in learning, recreation and independent living.
Acceptance into all programs is based on evaluation of skills of the individual and the availability of funds for necessary services. Access to services is through the Case Management program where the individual is evaluated to determine the level of disability and which services are appropriate. Infants and toddlers referred for Early Intervention services will be referred to the Child and Family Connection for Case Management services.
