Volunteers of America Oklahoma is the state's leader in specialized residential care for individuals with Prader-Willi Syndrome in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. This genetic disorder manifests itself in compulsive eating, life-threatening obesity, and mental retardation. It is estimated that one in 12,000 to 15,000 people has Prader-Willi Syndrome.
Although considered a “rare” disorder, it is one of the most common conditions seen in genetics clinics and is the most common genetic cause of obesity that has been identified. Please review our Prader-Willi Syndrome frequently asked questions section for more information.
Funding for these programs is provided from the Oklahoma Department of Human Services DDSD Division. Private pay is also accepted.
