Work Activity Center

WAC

Work for Well-Being

Residents interested in an opportunity to add a work routine into their schedule, have selected to spend some of their available time at the Work Activity Center established in 1980.

 

Recognizing the need to provide those who may still desire a need to enjoy the practice and patterns of functioning in a productive environment with others, the Residents' Work Activity Center supports and redefines alternatives to the day and payment for time and efforts.

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.”
