Employees at ADEC Industries perform high-quality packaging and assembly work for more than 100 industrial customers across the country and manufacture the Silver Linings trash bags that are used in all state government offices in Indiana. More than 60 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities are employed at ADEC Industries, picking up valuable job skills while also earning a paycheck.
Working collaboratively with Vocational Rehabilitation and area businesses, ADEC helps individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities find meaning and purpose through jobs in the community.
ADEC matches workers with disabilities to open jobs in the area while also providing job coaching, training, assistance and support for the employees at no cost to the employer.
Growth and Purpose.
Some young adults with disabilities find themselves in an awkward gap: they have graduated or “aged out” of the public-school system, but they would still like to develop job readiness skills before pursuing their career. ADEC bridges that gap with Growth and Purpose. Participants work on skills ranging from filling out a job application and making a good first impression to workplace etiquette and negotiating a raise.
