How You Can Help …
Valley Sheltered Workshop is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities. We are a private non-profit business that does not receive any State or Federal funding. A major portion of our income is derived from the work we provide to local businesses, but that does not cover all the expenses required to maintain and operate our workshop. As a result, we are dependent on the community and individuals for financial support. Please take a moment to review the information below to see how your gift can be our future.

Our employees are trained to meet the high quality control standards of our local business partners such as Flinn Scientific, Kane County Cougars, The HomeCourt Real Estate and Doctor’s Data. We would be delighted to discuss how our contract business services could help you save time and money – even if it’s only a one time job.

Thank you to everyone who came to Portillo’s in support of the Workshop’s fundraiser in June. Because of the great response, we were awarded a check for $126! We hope everyone enjoyed a tasty meal while participating in this community event that benefited Valley Sheltered Workshop.
The Workshop was recently honored to be the recipient of a $3,010 grant from Geneva Community Chest. These funds will help ensure that the Workshop continues to be a place of employment for local adults with developmental disabilities. We are extremely grateful to the Geneva Community Chest organization for being such a strong supporter of the Workshop and our mission of Empowerment Through Employment. Please support those who support us!
