Day Programs offer day habilitation, pre-vocational training, and supported employment. Both our men and women's day habilitation programs are custom made according to the needs and desired outcomes of each particular individual. The day consists of sessions in life skills, independent living skills, social skills, community integration, and recreational activities. Our pre-vocational and supported employment programs help train and sustain our individuals as productive and employable members of the community.

 

“I must say that Workpoint truly helped my business grow! At first, I was skeptical about including an employee who has developmental disabilities as part of my staff, but his excellent work, dedication to do his job right and of course the monetary benefits is what brought my business to where it is today" (Local Employer).
