Woodfords Family Services
Woodfords Family Services is committed to the support and inclusion of individuals with special needs and their families in Maine communities. Woodfords Family Services was founded more than 40 years ago by a small group of parents who had the vision and determination to enrich the lives of their children with special needs. The only way to reach this goal was through their own efforts. In 1967, they started a school in the basement of the Woodfords Congregational Church in Portland, and the “Woodfords Concept” was born. The school was a place where children with varying special needs could learn and be free to interact with their peers. This was a radical departure from the options previously available. Woodfords Family Services has seen many changes alongside its growth since 1967. What hasn’t changed over 40 years is our dedication to serving individuals with special needs, and our goal of bringing all children, adolescents, and adults with special needs into the fabric of our community.
Woodfords Family Services has been providing community based services to individuals with special needs for 45 years. The agency is proud to offer a wide array of family support and educational services in Southern, Central and Midcoast Maine.
At Woodfords, families are at the center of all we do. After all, "family is our middle name!"
