The L.E. Phillips Career Development Center offers Programs and Services for individuals with disabilities or disadvantages. These individuals are referred to the center for a variety of vocational services to assist them with finding and maintaining employment throughout our community.
Our goals while they are at the L.E. Phillips Career Development Center are:
Our articles of incorporation state the purpose for which we organized was: "To establish maintain, manage and support, through public and individual effort and appeal, a place for the employment of persons who are disabled or disadvantaged, and to provide a means where by such persons can enter into a gainful occupation." The people who are participating in the work areas are as diverse as the products provided. Individuals referred to the center come from all over the state, from as far south as Milwaukee and north to Rice Lake, and from around the world.
We continue to serve over one thousand individuals on a yearly basis, while maintaining the original purpose for which the center was originated back in 1959.
The next time you see a new face, know that we are "Working Together To Make A Difference".
L.E. Phillips Career Development Center's mission is to provide meaningful and appropriate vocational services, employment opportunities and community outreach resources for individuals with disabilities and disadvantages.
