Our Mission

Our mission is to help individuals with special needs, and their families, achieve maximum potential and independence through an array of services.


Green Valley was born out of necessity 54 years ago when a small group of very motivated parents decided it was time their children were given the opportunity to earn a paycheck, just like their peers. In 1968 the Dodge County Sheltered Workshop opened its doors on a tiny side street in the heart of Beaver Dam.

Since then, Green Valley has grown into a multi-faceted human service agency that provides solutions to over 400 families throughout Dodge County. A diverse 12-member Board of Directors oversees an agency budget of over 3.2 million dollars. Green Valley employs over 50 full-time and 25 part-time staff and is proud to provide the following programs and services.
