Making a difference in the lives of children and adults with disabilities for over 50 years.

Make A Difference.

There are many ways you can help support Waban’s work, such as cash donations, business sponsorship, in-kind donations, planned gifts, bequests, and with your time through volunteering or participating in special events.

Over five decades Waban has continually expanded its services to meet the ongoing and ever-changing needs of children and adults with autism, intellectual/ developmental and other disabilities. Thousands of individuals have benefited from our services and have gone on to have high quality, fulfilling lives. They couldn’t have done so without the tremendous support that we receive from generous individuals, businesses, and community members. For that, we are very grateful.

Waban Wear

Waban played a key role in turning my son’s life around.

“When our Jackson first started at Waban he made minimal to no eye contact, he would not respond to his name, wouldn’t dream of wearing a backpack, and was making no attempt at mimicking words. Jackson now enjoys spelling his name with blocks and playing with numbers. He will try very hard to mimic sounds and has started to make his needs known with a special communication device. To say we will miss Waban is an understatement, but the skills we are taking away from our time here will never be measured. You increased my son’s quality of life in just a few years and for a mother there is no greater gift you could give me than that.”
