TRADE Industries

TRADE Industries, founded in 1967, is a Not for Profit organization whose purpose is to provide rehabilitation services, which enhance the lives of people with disabilities. A group of parents came together with concerns about extending the educational and training opportunities for their sons and daughters with disabilities. The first programs were orientated toward education and vocational training. As TRADE grew, providing work opportunities became important. In recent years, TRADE has made a concerted effort to expand its residential services.

 Over the years, TRADE, in response to the needs of our region, has provided a variety of quality services. These have included vocational assessment and training; supported employment and job placement; residential services and support; mental health services including assessment, treatment, and day treatment; substance abuse assessment, education, and counseling; and emergency care for the homeless. TRADE is constantly adjusting services to meet the needs of the community it serves.

In 1988 TRADE Industries added Community Integrated Living Arrangements (CILA) Homes. These sites serve adults with developmental disabilities who need help with day to day living.
