Within the last year, two of our previous students were able to find supportive and competitive employment utilizing skills they learned through the Skill Building Program. MedWish’s Skill Building program is an asset to our program and a pleasure to be part of.

Improves Motor Skills
We work closely with partners to create a safe and inclusive volunteer experience that supports occupational therapy goals and community integration. Volunteer opportunities include sorting tasks: counting, bagging, packing, etc., as well as occupational tasks: work endurance, time management, and job safety. This program has empowered individuals with disabilities to learn new skills, prepare for success in the workplace or at school, and work towards their highest level of potential and independence.
The Skill Building Program furthers our mission to recover, repurpose and redistribute medical supplies and equipment to those in need, while simultaneously supporting the work of disability-centered agencies in our community.
