Let's Get To Work

Hattie Larlham offers two types of work programs for people with disabilities. The first is work training. Hattie Larlham has Hattie's Doggie Day Care and Boarding locations in Twinsburg, Akron and Cleveland. Here, people with disabilities receive hands-on experience and learn on the job to prepare for a job in the community.

The second is community employment. This service is similar to an employment agency, with the added benefit of post-employment services and supports to assure a successful transition.



When you purchase coffee from Hattie's Café & Gifts or board your dog with Hattie's Doggie Day Care & Boarding, you support employment opportunities for adults with disabilities. Your patronage is important to us, but it's even more important to the men and women learning the skills they need for compete for community employment. Shop our services for quality products, excellent service and the satisfaction that your purchase helped a person with disabilities in your community.

Community Employment

Hattie Larlham's community employment service connects adults with disabilities with supportive Northeast Ohio companies. It isn't enough for us to find jobs--our goal is to find jobs candidates can do, want to do and want to keep doing at a company they enjoy.

This philosophy ensures the people we serve stay employed and reduces turnover costs for employers. Our job coaches and support staff work alongside the employee and the hiring company to establish an open dialogue, set expectations and develop the skills that foster success. Contact us to find a qualified, hard-working employee for your company.
