Who We Are

TDCSS is a non-profit society that provides a variety of services to members of our community. At EmployAbilities we help match the people in our program with the needs of employers. We provide on the job training and regular follow-up with the employer to ensure success. Eventually participants in the program are able to work independently, with natural supports.

We stay involved, and follow up regularly with the employer and step in to assist whenever necessary. Whether it’s teaching new skills, helping the team learn about their new co-worker, or problem solving with the participant and employer, we are here for support.

Through work experience programs and coaching, we assist our participants in becoming successful and independent in their careers.
