NEW LOOK: Same Great Service!

You may have noticed that we have been undergoing a bit of a makeover lately as we freshen our look. Why? Because we have come a long way over our 40+ years.

We are still the same WDSRA that you depend on as we continue to put participants and families at the center of everything we do. Our mission remains the development of individuals through recreation. Our vision has been updated to better reflect more of what we do for our participants and families. Our new vision is to open a world of untapped potential and a lifetime of possibilities.

WDSRA continues to be about community, collaboration, and providing opportunities for a full life. We are always focused on our participants, our families and our communities.

We are proud to unveil a brand new logo.

This logo is more than just some pretty colors:
• Red – is a nod to our rich 40+ year history (and our longstanding Special Olympics colors)
• Green – is a reminder that special recreation is firmly rooted in the parks and recreation industry
• Blue – signifies the nature of the cool, calm professionals behind every program and every service WDSRA offers

Together they represent the same great WDSRA programs and services that you continue to make a part of your lives. Thank YOU for choosing WDSRA!
