My sister has been working in a sheltered workshop in Allentown for many years. She takes great pride in her work. If these workshops were to go away, I don't know what she would do. She is comfortable in her current situation and takes her work very seriously. Finding work in the general community would not work. While my sister is one of the higher functioning individuals at her facility, she still has limited physical and mental abilities and could easily be taken advantage of in an unprotected environment. Please maintain the 14c work centers.
