Wood County and CW Solutions are proud to offer a full array of services throughout the nine-county NorthCentral FSET Region.


Customers can choose to receive services at any office location throughout the region, regardless of where they reside.   


The region is divided into three service hubs: Wisconsin Rapids, Wausau and Rhinelander.   Although we  have created regional hubs, customers can chose to receive services anywhere, even in a different hub location if that is what is best for them.


Our headquarters is located in Wisconsin Rapids at the River Block building on 111 W Jackson St. Wisconsin Rapids, WI 54495.



Attention Hearing Impaired Customers:  If you need to contact us using TTY, please call 711.  Once connected to an operator, you can provide the local office number you wish to connect with and we will then be able to communicate with you via the TTY system. 

We are still providing services during the COVID-19 Pandemic. We are providing services in the office, but customers can also choose to receive assistance and support via telephone and electronic means.
