Employment services for people with disabilities

Hattie Larlham helps adults with disabilities begin their journey to employment. Everyone may not experience the same process, but our end goal for you remains the same - to find and maintain a job in the community.

We meet you where you are and develop an individualized plan designed to help you build skills needed to compete for community employment.

Our team will provide you with opportunities to explore different types of employment and job types and match you to the position that’s right for you.  Your experience may include some or all of the following phases:

Discovery

This is the first step towards employment. Through a team-based job exploration process, we will help you identify potential areas of interest. Working together will allow us to gain valuable insight and knowledge about you and your daily life. This experience also provides everyone on the team with an understanding of accommodations and supports that you may need to ensure success in both the work place and the community.

Assessment

This “test drive” is a short-term work opportunity in the community. You will complete up to 40 hours of hands-on training in a work area of your interest to determine whether that particular job is a good fit for you and the employer. 

Training

Takes place over a period of several weeks up to two years. Everyone’s training experience is different. During this time, you will work in a competitive setting to learn technical and workplace readiness skills.

HATTIE LARLHAM WORK TRAINING

Hattie Larlham’s work training benefits businesses and families, too!  When you board your dog with Hattie's Doggie Day Care & Boarding, you are providing employment opportunities for adults with disabilities. Your pup gets great care, and the men and women in our program gain the skills they need to compete for community employment.  

If your company is in need of a hard-working team, ready and able to do the job, contact us to learn more about our “integrated lines” contract services. Hattie Larlham will customize a workforce solution for you that provides an outstanding work experience in a competitive environment for people with disabilities – and a service to your company that results in a cost-savings. Let's talk.

Hattie's Doggie Day care and boarding 

Hattie’s Doggie Day Care & Boarding is a Hattie Larlham work training program. This would be a good place to begin your journey if you are interested in a career in animal care and also want to build other skills such as customer service. Here, you will receive training to care for the dogs but also learn how to work independently or as part of a team. After you complete training, you will have the skills you need to  compete for jobs in the community.

Integrated lines
 

If you’re interested in a manufacturing job and want to work in a team, integrated lines would be a good place to begin your employment journey.  A job coach is available on-site, works alongside the team and will help you learn the job and answer any questions you may have about your tasks. Many people who began their journey working for integrated lines have advanced to different areas of the company and joined the organization as a full-time, permanent employee.

Community employment


Where you begin you journey depends on you and your needs. We can start with on-the-job training where you will work with a job coach to learn how to do the job and what is expected of you as an employee. Participants who are ready to begin working in the community will receive help to develop a resume and prepare for interviews. No matter where your journey begins, our end goal is the same - we’re going to show employers you are able and ready to work.
