Building skills for employment through contract work and volunteer placements

We understand that our day programs cannot develop all of the skills for success in paid employment for everyone.
Our social enterprises - Wishme, formerly known as "Community Threads" and Riverside Grill - provide an opportunity to gain work experience in a business with a safe learning environment. In these settings, participants experience the realities of work as they develop skills that can lead to successful employment.
