The mission of our Launch Vocational Day Program is to empower and encourage self-determination for individuals with disabilities by accessing work and social opportunities in a truly community-based setting. Launch has two sites - one centrally located in beautiful Cohasset Village and another in downtown Hingham. These ideal locations allow our participants walking access to the numerous work opportunities, internships, and social events the sites have to offer. Launch participants experience an authentic community-based program full of working, learning, growing and achieving.
Why you should hire individuals with disabilities:
Studies have shown that employees with developmental disabilities contributed to higher productivity, lower absenteeism and increased customer loyalty.
Employees with disabilities can also offer creativity, innovation, and varied perspectives on how to confront challenges and get a job done.
Hiring people with disabilities conveys and promotes an inclusive work environment. This encourages empathy in the workplace (a trait that is important to have when working with customers and clients) and can improve the perception of the company from the consumer point of view.
