Waiting list for services: Clients with daytime hours available living in the Wausau area can start without being on the waiting list. The waiting list for after school clients are several months or longer. In geographic areas where we have difficulty recruiting staff, a waiting list may exist until we are able to recruit sufficient staff to add a client or until a current client exits and a team can take a new client. Currently, Crandon is a difficult area for us. This changes frequently so the best thing to do is check with Intake about current capabilities.
