The Woods / Allies Partnership

Providing Greater Capacity to Serve and Support

In May 2012, Allies became a proud affiliate of Woods Services – a nonprofit multi-service population health management and advocacy organization founded almost 105 years ago. Woods provides innovative, comprehensive and integrated health, education, workforce, behavioral health and care management services to children and adults in the intellectual and developmental disability, child welfare, behavioral and brain trauma public health sectors. Allies joins Archway Programs in Atco, NJ; Woods Community at Brian’s House in Chester PA; and Tabor Services as affiliates of Woods. Woods, one of the nation’s oldest and most well-respected human service organizations, has tremendous success in helping people attain greater levels of self-sufficiency. From residential programs and educational services to recreational opportunities, vocational training, medical, clinical and therapeutic supports, Woods offers individualized and evidenced-based solutions that considerably improve lives. The organization’s experienced and devoted employees and forward-thinking board are the driving forces behind Woods’ meaningful accomplishments. They provide the leadership and on-going commitment to preserve program excellence and the highest quality of service. The partnerships created among all of Woods’ affiliate organizations enable us to draw on one another’s strengths and to collaborate to lead to superior levels of care.

“We are infinitely proud of Allies’ growth since joining Woods Services in 2012. Through its own mergers and affiliations, the organization is now impacting the lives of many more individuals throughout New Jersey with its outstanding programs and services. Our shared progressive vision that is grounded within a public health framework will assuredly lead to significant outcomes for people with exceptional differences and empower them to live their best lives.”
