Beyond the myriad ways the ladies of WBC give back in their personal lives, WBC supports our community by selecting community partners throughout the year to support as an organization.

The Community Service Committee has selected Developmental Services Center as our 2020 Charitable Partner. There were a lot of good nominations, but DSC has a lot of opportunities for the WBC membership to volunteer. Michelle Trowbridge (WBC Treasurer) and Stephanie Davenport (DSC Grants and Marketing Director) are members of WBC and employees of DSC. DSC serves approximately 1,200 children and adults with developmental disabilities, such as epilepsy, cerebral palsy, autism, cognitive disabilities, Down syndrome, or other conditions. Individuals seeking services may experience functional or environmental challenges that require extra support to live more independently. These challenges may include assistance in adequate daily living skills, adequate work skills, recognized social behaviors, or the ability to access community transportation. Direct and indirect services provided through choice include prevention, intervention/treatment, habilitation/rehabilitation, and support/maintenance to Champaign and Ford county residents. DSC's core services continue to fulfill our mission "support people in living a rich and meaningful life."
Women's Business Council is proud to support the organizations that support our community - the place we live, work and play.
