My son is is employed in a workshop. In a workshop setting, individuals have close supervision and transportation services. These jobs provide opportunities for individuals to work while benefiting from support services. This work environment helps build self-confidence, friendships and independence. Everyone deserves to have those things in their life. If a workshop is closed many would not find other employment and quality of life would deteriorate. My son worked at a business for community employment. He was harassed, made fun of, and told to do things that were not safe by co-workers. Community employment is not for everyone!! My son enjoys and looks forward to going to the workshop each day.
