Vocational Habilitation

Often referred to as “voc hab,” vocational habilitation provides learning and work experience for adults with disabilities. This experience, which can include volunteer work, helps participants develop the skills needed to transition to integrated community employment. The goal is for the participant to find a job that matches personal interests, strengths and abilities.

Adults in our Vocational Habilitation program learn to:

  • Take care of personal needs.
  • Work well with others on the job.
  • Advocate for themselves in the workplace.
  • Use transportation to get safely to and from their job sites.

These services are offered specifically via our microenterprises; O2 Urban Farms and Just Brew Coffee House.
