Wai Ji Christian Service has entered its 42nd year since its establishment in 1979. Our Agency was established by a group of members of the Kowloon Union Church to minister to the needs of people with intellectual disabilities in the society, formerly known as Kowloon Union Church Wai Ji Training Centre. Since 1984, the Agency received subvention from the Social Welfare Department. By Jesus Christ’s love, we provide a wide range of services to people with intellectual or other kinds of disabilities so as to take care of their needs in a holistic way and enable them to develop their potentials and integrate them into the society.

 

The services of our Agency grew continuously with the needs of society. At present, we provide integrated rehabilitation services centre, hostel, sheltered workshop, supported employment, day activity centre, integrated rehabilitation services centre, community support and professional support services, professional outreach service for residential care homes for persons with disabilities, social enterprise as well as a parents and relatives resource centre. In recent years, our service targets have expanded from people aged fifteen or above with intellectual or other kinds of disabilities to people aged six or above with intellectual or other kinds of disabilities.

In the spirit of Christ, the core values of our Agency depend on four constituents:

(1) The team spirit of the Agency, respect for the rights of persons with disabilities, and support the quality of life of service users to be substantially improved.

(2) Professional, sincere, and loving service attitude of colleagues.

(3) Service users’ responsiveness and participation.

(4) Service users’ family members’ and society responsiveness and participation.

 

Aging and higher professional needs of our service users are the challenges for our team at present. “So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” (Corinthians 13:13) We will optimize the spirit to cope with the challenges and improve the service qualities. We will work for people with disabilities to be treated with respect, their rights to be protected, their quality of life to be enhanced continuedly, and their potentials to be developed to the fullest.
