Employment Training and Development through Community Job Partnerships
Abilitree develops and maintains numerous quality partnerships with local businesses in the Central Oregon area. These companies outsource a variety of their work that our participants complete from our 5000 square foot Work Center in Bend or at the actual site of the vendor partners in business enclaves. This gives people with disabilities the opportunity to be trained in various tasks from our Center in such job areas as product packaging, fulfillment, light assembly, shrink wrapping, and secure document destruction. When they are prepared and ready, participation in business enclaves allows them to experience community based employment by working alongside other employees of that company with continuing support from our staff. The next progressive opportunity comes from community job placement, either full or part time at a local business, leading to even more experienced independence and productivity by those participants.
