The I-Space (Inviting Special Populations to Access Community Environments) program offers adults (ages 18+) with special needs the opportunity to maintain their dignity and sense of fulfillment through their placement in appropriate paid employment. I-Space works to identify placements suitable to their skill level and abilities through skills assessments, in addition to in-depth workplace and task evaluations. I-Space also offers financial and legal counseling for parents and caregivers in order to avoid any conflict between benefits (ie. Social Security) and income.
