Sheltered Workshops

Sheltered Workshops

Extended Employment Sheltered Workshops (EESW) provide employment via a public-private non-profit partnership in a controlled, safe, and highly supervised work environment. This partnership is designed toward enabling individuals with disabilities to progress toward normal living and to develop, as far as possible, his or her capacity, performance, and relationship with other persons.

Extended Employment Sheltered Workshops, so far as possible, provide work experiences sufficiently diverse to accommodate the needs of each enrolled individual with a disability.

Extended Employment Sheltered Workshops also coordinate and integrate its services with all community agencies for the benefit of its employees, and whenever practicable, make use of the services available from these agencies.
