The Work Opportunity Center (WOC) offers a wide variety of opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Vocational Evaluations
This service provides diagnostic services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities exploring their vocational interests and abilities. A written report is generated by the Work Evaluator, which highlights strengths as well as areas that may need additional training. Community job samplings are conducted in this service.
