Key Points On Giving
What a wonderful company to do business with. Thank you for preparing my mass mailing packets and sending out on time. I will be doing business with you again!
K&K Multimedia Inc.
My daughter had tuberous sclerosis complex with developmental delay, autism, and a seizure disorder and also has scoliosis and ulcerative colitis, so things have never been really easy for her. But there must be something really special about your place and your people, both staff and clients! My daughter has an extremely positive attitude about joining you each day. She does not want to miss a day of work even when we had out of town family here for a local stay-cation! She seems to be more meticulous about her responsibilities since starting work, and she also seems happier to us than when she was a student. Thank you for caring so very much for people who face challenges.

We have used the Work Activity Center for multiple affixing and key hand-work projects. In all cases, their work has been accurate and completed in the time promised.
The Oklahoman Direct, Venette Perry
As the owner of Moore's primary source for news through the Moore Monthly Magazine, I have an obligation to insure the publication is delivered on time and at a high level of quality. On numerous occasions, we have contracted with the Work Activity Center to add inserts inside the publication and promotional stickers on the cover. In every instance, the Work Activity Center provided the requested services on time or sooner, and worked within the parameters of our schedule and logistical needs, sometimes even fulfilling last minute orders.
Brent Wheelbarger, owner, Trifecta Communications
The Work Activity Center has allowed me to grow my business exponentially through the assistance that their staff provides. The flexibility they have shown in meeting my needs is beyond compare. From the beginning, the cost has been economical and the turn around time has been excellent. I have expanded on what I give the Center to do because I know they will do it well and quickly. I am looking forward to many years of working together.
Nickanny's Treasures, CEO, Mathea Ford
Orr Family Farm has had the opportunity to contract for services with the Work Activity Center for the last 6 years. The staff has been great to work with and have also helped with suggestions to improve the job quality. The work has always been completed timely and professionally. We highly recommend the Work Activity Center and capable staff to your organization.

A bit about our team...
Growth Through Understanding, Support, Cooperation and Love
On August 9, 1976, the Work Activity Center, Inc., opened its doors -fulfilling the dreams of many disabled adults, parents, and educators in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area by providing a safe work environment as well as a social outlet for the developmentally disabled. We started with five full-time and three part-time individuals who had developmental disabilities along with two staff members. Since then we have grown to thirty-two individuals ranging in age from 22 - 57 years old. We also have four supervisors and two administrative staff members. Currently, we have 19 clients, and the staff ratio remains the same. We do not receive state or federal funding, and are supported by our contracts , private donations and grants.
We believe everyone needs an opportunity to achieve his or her fullest potential. We recognize that individuals are happier when they are productive and that everyone benefits by contributions through meaningful work. We employ the developmentally disabled utilizing their individual skills to perform a variety of job functions required by our contracts with businesses in Oklahoma City, Moore and Norman. Through these new skills, each individual grows into the new opportunities at their own individual pace.
We, at Work Activity Center, are very proud of our accomplishments achieved throughout our long history in Moore Oklahoma, and we plan to grow our legacy in years to come -providing employment for our wonderful, special employees. With every new project we undertake, we accept the responsibility of exceeding the expectations of our clients. It is through that philosophy we intend to grow our footprint in the future. Work Activity Center employees are passionate about their work. Along with our clients, they are the cornerstone of our success. We pride ourselves on being people of integrity who excel at delivering optimal results. We pursue opportunities for growth by taking our work and processes to new markets, introducing new techniques to regions where we have a presence, and continually improving our services to ensure that our solutions are second-to-none for business repeatability.
Above all, we try to make our work atmosphere both friendly and safe. We have various events throughout the year that build teamwork and brotherhood. We encourage our support families and volunteers to assist with events, projects and new opportunities. With this understanding and cooperation we see our limitations as boundless, and will carry us into the future.
