Narrative

South Shore Industries helps adults with disabilities gain the training, skills, and opportunities to find meaningful jobs in the community.

An integral part of our Adult Services Program, South Shore Industries is committed to the exploration, development, and implementation of employment plans tailored to each individual’s preferences, skills and needs.

The program is designed for adults over age 22, with and without employment experience. Participants receive the support to:

 - Explore employment settings; enhance employment skills; participate in volunteer programs and    community-based work crews.
 - Obtain employment-related training in areas such as resume writing, interviewing skills, appropriate    social boundaries, and community safety. We encourage team building activities as well as fitness and    health opportunities.
 - Gain the confidence and tools to find success in the workplace, a vital part of living a full,    meaningful and independent life as an active member of their community.

Located in Braintree and Hanover, the center based program sites are fully accessible and climate controlled. Program referrals are generated through the Department of Developmental Services and the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission.
