Central Wisconsin Center

People caring for people

Established in 1959, Central Wisconsin Center (CWC) provides short-term and residential services to assist people living with intellectual disabilities in acquiring the personal skills needed to reach their highest potential. CWC is one of three centers for individuals with intellectual disabilities managed by the Division of Care and Treatment Services


The health and wellness of our residents and staff is our highest priority. To prevent the spread of COVID-19, we are:

  • Restricting visitation by non-essential personnel.
  • Screening all visitors for symptoms or exposure.
  • Restricting staff from work if they have fever or signs of respiratory infection. 
  • Canceling indoor social gatherings and community events.

Please consider not visiting during this time.
