We offer vocational training for people by negotiating with area businesses for jobs that can be completed in our workshop. The workshop consists of a food service and tabletop assembly/packaging. Our intent is to offer a variety of work environments that can develop work skills while earning a wage.
We also have alternative programs to provide therapeutic and/or leisuire activities. This is for the person who does not benefit from a full day of work because of reaching retirement age or for whom a sensory stimulation or communication goal may be primary rather than vocational training.
