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.
