Vocational Support Services

Since 1968, we have built a solid reputation for providing meaningful employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities in businesses owned or operated by Columbus. Employment opportunities within our businesses are geared for individuals who want to work in an environment that provides day-to-day training in a supportive work environment.

Columbus staff work on social and interpersonal skills that are critical in work settings, such as:

  • attendance
  • completing tasks
  • productivity

In addition, this program gives individuals an opportunity to get job experience in a variety of area that include:

  • packaging
  • sorting
  • light assembly
  • custodial
  • warehouse work

I don’t know what the community or my son, Steven, would have done without Columbus. I think it is wonderful that Steven has had a place to go and to work and to feel needed, and feel that he is contributing to society. He works hard and earns every penny he makes.”

Arlene Dial, mother of Steven, who has been a participant at Columbus Community Center for over four decades.
