Community Based Work Adjustment Training

Goodwill Community Based Work Adjustment is designed to help individuals with disabilities to develop skills and formulate plans to prepare for and obtain successful employment in the community. Individuals work in Goodwill stores and area businesses where real world work opportunities are offered to assess a persons abilities, interest and job skills.

Goodwill staff works with individuals in the community for a period of 30 to 120 days through the Community Work Adjustment Program. The purpose of the program is to help individuals understand the meaning, value, and demands of work and to establish effective work skills, attitudes, and behaviors.

Individuals eligible for this program must be eligible to work in the United States, have a documented disability that is a barrier to employment, require services to gain employment, have a funding source-typically the Department of Aging and Rehabilitative Services, or able to purchase service on their own, and have the ability to care for personal needs, or have aid to assist with needs.

Community Based Work Adjustment training operates Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.
