The Custom Creations program offers the individual a unique opportunity to participate in an actual work environment. Our program teaches life skills in a “worker” type environment, through the manufacturing of products that are sold in the community. Staying on task, accomplishing a goal, working as a team are just some of values that are taught.
In our program, power tools such as table saws, chop saws, drill presses, routers, etc. have been adapted with safety devices allowing our individuals to operate them with confidence safely. We have also designed and developed new power tools that are not on the market yet. This adapted safety equipment can be used anywhere.
Our plans are to develop relationships with manufacturing plants throughout Florida in the next 5 years, and to go nationwide within ten years. This will allow other agencies and businesses the opportunity to offer manufacturing jobs to all individuals with disabilities.
