What We Do
Fairfield County businesses contract with the Work Activity Center for projects such as filling envelopes for mass mailings, packaging samples for marketing projects, or putting labels on brochures. The Work Activity Center completes projects from beginning to end including delivery to the post office. Participants are paid on a piece-rate basis according to the number of units they complete. Business leaders know they can depend on the Work Activity Center because the participants have the traditional work ethic that keeps them highly motivated to meet production goals.
Emphasis is placed on adapting tasks to maximize success for participants whatever the physical or sensory deficits may be. Workstations are arranged to accommodate hemi-paresis, limited vision or arthritis. The leadership of the Work Activity Center believes, “If a person wants to work, our goal is to make that happen. That’s our job, to be sure everyone who wants to work has a job to do.”
