Our Taunton Employment Center has teamed up with the non-profit organization called Neighborhood Corporation, whose mission is to address community and economic development needs, especially those of low-income families and individuals, in Greater Taunton area. Now the individuals sign up on a monthly basis and go three times a week to water 11 planters. Working in the community has given the individuals involved a deeper sense of belonging, and they are very grateful for theopportunity.

As the Community Based Day Supports (CBDS) Program continues to flourish at the Marshfield II Employment Program, one of the more popular sessions that we offer, Fashion Focus, has reached some remarkable milestones. After months of preparation, our dedicated CBDS staff put together and performed an in-house Fashion Show and offered it to all the folks that attend the Program. This Fashion Show was only the beginning of more to come! This time around, folks were encouraged to model absolutely whatever they felt comfortable in with the main goal of getting some of them to come out of their shell a bit. As a result, individuals that were just looking on that would not typically put themselves out there, joined in and everyone cheered them on! It was really quite fascinating! Stayed tuned for future events where we will be encouraging families and others to come join in the excitement as we continue to show-off our abilities!
