Compensated Work Therapy Programs
Compensated Work Therapy – Transitional Work Experience (CWT-TWE) is a vocational rehabilitation program that provides opportunities for Veterans with disabilities, other co-occurring disorders, homelessness or other barriers, to participate in a variety of job assignments in a structured, therapeutic environment.
CWT-TWE provides Veterans with a structured evaluation of their employment potential, attitudes, and capacity for work. Through therapeutic and educational strategies we strive to assist our Veterans in improving their vocational work skills, work stamina and the ability to work cooperatively with others. The ultimate goals of CWT include gainful community employment, increased independence, and enhanced quality of life.
In order to be eligible for the program, one must be medically and psychiatrically cleared to engage in work part-time or full-time and receive a referral from their medical/mental health provider.
