About Us

Prader-Willi California Foundation (PWCF) was established in 1979 as a non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization by parents of persons with Prader-Willi syndrome. PWCF is an affiliate member of the national Prader-Willi Syndrome Association (USA). Our founders’ aspirations were to improve the educational and residential quality of life of individuals born with the syndrome. Today, PWCF is over 700 members strong.

Our Mission

Individuals with Prader-Willi syndrome should have the opportunity to pursue their hopes and dreams to the full extent of their talents and capabilities. The success of people with Prader-Willi syndrome depends greatly upon the knowledge and support of the community around them. The Prader-Willi California Foundation provides individuals with PWS, their families and professionals with a state network of information, advocacy and support services.

Our Vision

A Full Life Without Limits
