Project, Inc. is located at 2828 Brannon Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri 63139, 314.647.3300.
In January 1958, the National Advisory Council of the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation approved a Research and Demonstration grant under Section 4(a) of Public Law 565 to fund the St. Louis Research and Demonstration Project. The St. Louis program established a rehabilitation facility for persons age 18 and older with developmental and intellectual disabilities, who were previously considered to have little or no potential for vocational rehabilitation. The program became OVR Research and Demonstration Project Number 274. The program took the name of Project, Inc., and received Federal support for a period of three years (April 1, 1958 to March 31, 1961).
As time progressed it became apparent that job training alone could not meet the needs of the population served. As a result, Project, Inc. began an employment program. Project Workshop, Inc. is an Extended Employment Sheltered Workshop incorporated in 1966 to comply with the Missouri Senate Bill 52 workshop regulations (R.S. 178.900). As required in Senate Bill 52, no charge can be made to parents or guardians for allowing their child to work in the workshop. The developmentally and intellectually disabled adults employed in our workshop have been determined incapable of working in normal industries under a competitive work situation at the time of employment. If, after a period of time, a workshop employee is determined to be job ready, he or she is referred for competitive or supported employment to one of the area agencies providing that service.
While some workshop employees have transitioned to competitive employment, the majority have made Project, Inc. their home. Their choice of employer gives them a secure job site, continuous skill development, and social interaction with their peer group.
