Valley Sheltered Workshop

Valley Sheltered Workshop (VSW) relies heavily on the contributions and donations of our community to provide a vital support system for the individuals we serve. Without the support of our community, VSW would not be able to provide the necessary services and resources for individuals with disabilities to participate in work and achieve independence.

The donations we receive from our community allow us to continue to expand our reach and services to meet the needs of our partners. We are able to invest in new equipment and technology, provide training and development opportunities, and support our partners in finding permanent employment.

Our Story

Valley Sheltered Workshop (VSW) has provided dignity for individuals with disabilities in the Fox Valley area since 1966. Founded by Rev. Gilbert Johnstone, a Batavia minister whose son had a disability and would soon be exiting the school system, and 6 other local business people, they created the Workshop based on a mission statement that focused on helping the attendees to achieve their highest potential in all aspects of their lives through friendship, learning and earning an income. VSW continues to remain a crucial resource for 11,000 individuals in Illinois who rely on sheltered workshops for support.

How We Are Making an Impact 

VSW, through its longtime relationships, such as life-sustaining grants from local organizations, charitable contributions from friends and neighbors, and support from its business partners that utilize services provided by sheltered workshops, VSW continues to support and build independence for adults with disabling conditions. VSW counts on the community’s continued support to bring dignity and purpose to the individuals they serve daily.
