Connecting People with I/DD with Meaningful Employment
Every person has a right to employment that is fulfilling and enjoyable. Whether a person with intellectual or developmental disability works, volunteers or takes part in a structured day program, these opportunities are critical in boosting self-esteem and fostering a sense of accomplishment.
Adult Employment Services
Our model ensures each person is properly trained and supported toward the goal of transitioning into the workforce. With time, attention and developmental and refinement of skills, individuals progress to competitive employment with minimal to no support.

Job opportunities are community-based with ongoing on-site training from a Bancroft Job Coach. As skill level improves and increased independence is achieved, individuals transition to competitive employment in the community.
