Our Story

The Resource Center Program

Founded in 2008, The Resource Center Program is part of WCI’s service offering to families and was created by caring parents raising children with a disability. The program, known as TRCP, provides programming in the counties of Kandiyohi, Meeker, Renville and Swift and is a regional resource for west central Minnesota. Partnerships with local, regional and statewide health and human service organizations, nonprofit agencies, medical professionals and educators strengthen its outreach to families and share TRCP’s goals of education, support and connection. TRCP is guided by its own 10-member advisory board and is a grant and locally funded program.
