Providing productive employment for the Kishorit members is a vital part of the rehabilitation process and a significant step toward independence. Work provides a daily routine, a place to form social bonds, a way to learn new skills, and a source of self esteem and self worth.
We believe that with the proper training, supervision, support and guidance, the majority of people with special needs can be integrated into the workforce. In order to achieve this lofty goal, we offer professional training, long term job coaching and opportunities for employment in a wide range of settings – from agriculture to industry – that utilize diverse skill sets and abilities. In consultation with his/her social worker, each member decides where he/she wants to work and is placed in a job that suits his/her strengths and interests.
For this purpose, Kishorit owns and operates a number of businesses that provide meaningful employment for the Kishorit members and also produse goods for sale to the general market. Some businesses are extremely profitable, others are balanced, and some are still on the way to profitability, but are important centers for providing employment.
