Metro Work Center fosters growth and independence of adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities through employment, community participation, and other life enhancing activities. We are committed to providing high quality individualized services and opportunities.
Prince started with Metro Work Center three years ago working on our grounds keeping crew. He also participated in our paid-training program, doing small jobs around the center like shredding paper, cleaning tables, and light janitorial work. Prince ultimate goal was to work in the community as a direct hire. After Prince strived while working at the center he was given the opportunity to join an enclave work crew at Mt.Olivet. He was there for less than a month before getting a job offer from Walmart. He was praised by staff for doing an outstanding job at the nursing home, and had good reports from his job coach while working on the grounds keeping crew. Prince has a very good work ethic and is extremely helpful to his peers when working. These skills will help Prince thrive at his new job. He is a direct hire for Walmart and he is extremely excited.
Please join us in congratulating Prince for all that he has accomplished. ... See MoreSee Less

Individuals work in the community at supported work sites or independently. Some work at the Center on sub-contract jobs or in paid work training positions. Staff members provide individualized job readiness training as needed.
Your support helps to provide high quality services and opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities and other related conditions.
Community participation is always part of our day. Walking trips to local retail and dining locations are commonplace. Located on a bus route and near the light rail line, we often visit sites outside the immediate neighborhood.
