Our mission supports inclusivity throughout adulthood.
Happy Hearts Working is a place of belonging for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families and the community. All activities are designed to support our associates to reach their fullest potential each day at our HHW Headquarters, in addition to out in the public sector. HHW associates will work alongside volunteers, who will help teach the importance of giving back to the community. Social outings will be planned for our associates and volunteers on a regular basis, to spread the joy of Christ with others and establish friendships for life!
Through Vocational Rehabilitation services, HHW associates may qualify for:
An opportunity to practice job skills and apply for a part-time job.
When employed they receive minimum wage rather than a possible lower rate of pay.
A Supported Employment program, which utilizes 1-1 Job Coaching for each I/DD hired individual.
Schools who have partnered with Happy Hearts Working, Inc. recognize the benefits of having disabled employees present in an integrated setting, as it is inclusivity in action! Happy Hearts Working, Inc. will be a licensed agency for the I/DD support network, to identify and monitor paid services along with providing natural supports. This will enhance independence and productivity for HHW associates who are willing to pursue employment, consistent with their personal needs and interests, as outlined in their service plan.
