Virtual Services

The team at WOU offers quality virtual service options, which can be provided as needed and requested by referral sources and individuals being served. While services are predominantly provided in-person, the need to utilize technology and offer virtual services, with a personal connection, is critical to ensuring the satisfaction and success of every customer we serve.

We have and continue to work with our Information and Technology Team, as well as, a team of programmers to produce technology that results in secure, user-friendly experiences for our team and our customers. Of course, the virtual experience requires engaging and effective facilitation. It is with great pride and confidence that we continue to hire, train, and retain a large team of dedicated professionals who are dedicated to your satisfaction and to ensuring both virtual and in-person services provided are of the highest quality.
