Each day our individuals go work "real jobs with real paychecks." All work sites are in real work settings and provide interaction with non-disabled employers. Our crews include a janitorial team and a sorting team. All crews have a job coach making sure each job is done correctly. Many individuals have SE jobs in the community with Oakhill Church of Christ, McDonalds, Wendy's, Sweet Frogs, Joan's Florist and Pasquales, and have a job coach readily available to support them.
