CWS Business Partners


Boston, MA
Started in 2007

Combining our clients' independence, skills, and desire for real world work experience with the supports they need to succeed, this program is a win for the business who participate, our agency, and most importantly the people who realize new job opportunities through this experience.

Our ventures include food service and catering, commercial cleaning, landscaping, and production work. These businesses put CWS’s program participants to work.  They provide on-the-job training opportunities that help individuals gain a better understanding of work expectations, develop technical skills and earn wages.  These experiences also provide much-needed recent work history, which increases a participant’s marketability to potential employers
