UpLIFTD is a 501-C-3 non-profit agency incorporated as Louisiana Industries For The Disabled, Inc. Prior to 1991, WCRC was an outside agency under the Baton Rouge City Parish. As a result of the reorganization of the Baton Rouge City Parish in 1991, it was determined WCRC would no longer be considered a City Parish agency. WCRC approached the Louisiana Industries for the Disabled, Inc. (UpLIFTD), a non-profit private corporation serving persons with disabilities, about possible affiliation. Being part of a much larger corporation would give WCRC more long term stability as well as the ability to provide insurance benefits to its employees. In April 1992, the UpLIFTD board voted to accept WCRC as a component of its program. This affiliation has proven to be successful and beneficial for both WCRC and UpLIFTD.
