Finding an apartment. Getting a job. Going to college.

Whatever your goals are, we can help you achieve them.

Toolworks sees disability as part of the continuum of human experience, and we serve people with all types of disabilities. If we don’t yet have a program to serve you, we’re probably already working on creating one.

We offer a wide range of services to help you prepare for and gain employment, live independently, and access your community. Our staff is comprised of individuals representing the people we serve and experts in the field of disability.

Most of our services are accessible by all people with disabilities. We also have specialized services for people who are Deaf or hard-of-hearing, those with developmental disabilities, and individuals with disabilities who are homeless or at risk for homelessness. To see if you are eligible for services, please click on the program you are interested in.

We provide many different services, from job placement to internship opportunities to job training, we have the tools to connect you with employment.

Supported Living Services
Through supported and independent living, we provide you with individually-tailored support to help you live where you choose. Based on your needs and preferences, a range of supports is put into place that includes direct support from Toolworks staff and coordination of outside supports (such as in-home supportive services). The types of supports that are generally provided include money management, coordination of health care, personal assistance, travel training, and housing referrals.

Housing Partnerships
Access to affordable and accessible housing is one of the biggest challenges faced by people with disabilities. Toolworks advocates for and partners with local nonprofit housing organizations to ensure that this type of housing is created. Toolworks provides on-site supportive services to people with disabilities, homeless or at-risk individuals, and seniors living in affordable housing provided by our partner nonprofit housing organizations. These services are designed to ensure that individuals are fully included in their resident communities and have access to the resources they need to maintain independent living.
