General Information
Description of ServiceSince 1954, Northeast Career Planning's Long-Term Sheltered Employment Program has been providing disabled adults the opportunity to enjoy the rewards of being gainfully employed while being in a supportive and structured environment. Individuals who face unique challenges are provided the individual attention that can help them achieve their goals and aspire to eventual competitive employment. Each participant has a counselor who assists him-her in realizing his-her potential. Consideration is given to special needs necessitated by one's disability, such as a part-time schedule, extra training, or frequent encouragement. Many program participants have never worked before, or have had unsuccessful work histories. The sheltered workshop provides them an opportunity to earn a paycheck and to feel good about their accomplishments. When individuals have met their vocational goals, they may feel ready to accept he challenge of competitive employment.
