OPWDD understands how critical employment and opportunities for positive social interaction are to individuals and remains focused on retaining the positive aspects of the current system while striving to expand opportunities through greater exposure to local communities.

OPWDD’s Work Settings Report lays out a comprehensive plan to assist individuals currently working in sheltered workshop programs as such programs transition to integrated work settings that are consistent with federal requirements and a plan to meet the needs and goals of people who choose not to transition to community-based integrated work settings.

OPWDD remains committed to continuing our collaboration with all stakeholders as individuals, families and providers adapt to new federal requirements.
