Bill Wilson Center (BWC) connects youth and their families to education, employment, housing and positive relationships. Its goal is to ensure that every youth has access to the range of services needed to grow to be healthy and self-sufficient adults.
Services include transitional housing, rapid re-housing, permanent supported housing, medical and mental health services, support groups and access to education and job training. BWC’s intervention assistance is offered without preconditions — like employment, income, absence of criminal record, or sobriety — and the resources and services provided are tailored to the unique needs of each individual and household.
