How We're Different

We promote and facilitate inclusive employment rather than sheltered employment. Sheltered employment provides employment opportunities and locations that exclusively employ individuals with disabilities. Our program provides the necessary curriculum and training to allow our clients the opportunity to explore employment options within their community with confidence as any other individual would aspire to do.
