About Us

Creating Pathways to Independence and Inclusion

Elevate's mission is to create a pathway to independence for individuals with disabilities through work ready learning, life skills development, employment placement and programs that support person-centered success.

Any individual with a disability who needs assistance in job development and employment placement can apply for supported employment services through the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation.  

The daily activities of Elevate are comprised of person-centered programs, focused on the individual goals of each of our participants:  Goals to help gain independence, to live and work in our community, to serve others, and to explore and develop unique talents and gifts, as we create an atmosphere of support, empowerment, and sustainability for everyone we serve.

Grounded in the history of Hugh Edward Sandefur’s dream, Elevate is the only adult day training center in the area that offers on site prevocational training through employment at or above minimum wage.  That dream has evolved into a comprehensive program that incorporates daily living skills and educational opportunities into the work day for all of our participants.
