Integrating Clients into Meaningful Jobs
Eastco’s Supported Employment Program place adults living with developmental disabilities into integrated worksites. The placement is based on the individual’s interest and work experience. Individuals are carefully screened to guarantee a successful match of job requirements, individual abilities and needs. We provide a Job Coach to train the individual on-the-job until he or she can independently perform the job to the employer’s quality and production standards.
Eastco offers supported employment through:
- Janitorial crews (QRF)
- Local business placement such as Burger King, Walgreens and Burgerville
Through employment opportunities, our clients gain increased independence by performing meaningful tasks where they work hard, learn and have fun. They not only develop a sense of pride and dignity in their work, but enjoy a social environment where they can meet people and develop friendships within the community.
Eastco also offers employment opportunities to clients through their services for business.
