To Quickly Learn About The Potomac Center Watch Our Video Below.

The Potomac Center is West Virginia's only intensive training facility for children with intellectual/developmental disabilities and accompanying behavioral problems. The Center offers a unique, desperately needed array of residential services in a family-oriented atmosphere for a deserving population of West Virginians.

We are a registered 501C(3) private, not-for-profit agency that is always in need of funding to buy the essentials the children need such as clothing, educational supplies, and also to ensure active participation in community outings and recreational activities.

Your donation is greatly needed and will be much appreciated as we use it to support this wonderful group of children and adults.


"You know A**** loves you all there. You guys have taken such wonderful care for her. In the beginning I realized that I could not care for her anymore I had to make the most hardest decision of my life. I was worried about her going to the Potomac Center cause I didn’t know if she would like it or if anyone would be mean to her. But you guys have been a gift from God above. Everything you did for her I couldn’t do anymore. I couldn’t get the proper Doctors to put her on the meds that she so desperately needed. You have done all of that and then some. She is more calmer, does what you ask her to do, and even has learned some new words since being there."
