Organizational Employment

UCP of Greater Cleveland’s Organizational Employment Program is designed to foster personal financial independence for adults with moderate to severe disabilities.  Individuals are encouraged to accept vocational and social challenges within an integrated setting with the least restrictions possible.  Participant needs are assessed through a person-centered planning process and reviewed periodically for progress in meeting stated goals.

UCP’s Wolstein Center houses an on-site workshop and computer lab to offer individuals the opportunity to learn and practice work skills with necessary supports.  The agency contracts with area businesses to provide piece-rate work, and individuals receive a paycheck based upon individual productivity.
