Employment & Community Services

Experience has taught us that meaningful employment is one of the best ways to boost an individual's self-esteem and confidence that they play a valuable role within their community. Easterseals strives to pace the road to independence through employment.

Employment and Community Services offers a CARF accredited employment program including pre-vocational evaluation, work adjustment training, employment planning, school-to-work transition, supported employment, and job placement services.

Our Community Experience Program is ideal for adults with intellectual disabilities who like variety and seek opportunities out in the community while building independent skills. The program provides opportunities for community integrated activities of choice, valued adult experiences, and participation in all activities the community has to offer.

We've moved!

The Employment and Community Services program is excited for the opportunity to begin expanding services at their new location in Watertown. Coming from a primarily industrial space at Avenue of Industry to a new space that is more conducive to human services, vocational training, and skills development for both the individuals we serve and staff members ready to help them reach their goals. Future plans include the expansion of the Day Services Program to meet the needs of individuals who have more complex medical needs. In addition, there has been preliminary planning to begin offering services such as In-home Supports and Transitional Services. With the continued hard work of everyone involved and our new location the sky is the limit for Employment and Community services. 

We've moved!
